The University of Manchester, 2018/19 BBSRC DTP PhD Project Understanding tubulin regulation during neuronal development, ageing and degeneration Axons are slender, up-to-a-meter long, cable-like extensions of neurons which form the nerves and nerve tracts that wire our bodies and brain. These delicate cellular structures have to be maintained for an organism’s life time and are[…]
