Nancy Malintan - 1622

Nancy Malintan, PhD

Nancy is a neuroscientist with a background in synaptic vesicle biology, specifically the mechanisms of neuroexocytosis and vesicle recycling. She joined the UCL Institute of Neurology as a research associate in Professor James Rothman laborotory to develop liposome fusion assay that recapitulates calcium-regulated neuroexocytosis and in combination with optical imaging, setup a single vesicle fusion assay to study the dynamics of neurotransmission. Nancy uses these assays, molecular and biochemical techniques to elucidate the pathomechanisms of neurological diseases. When not doing science, she indulged her passion for cakes, mountain climbing and distance running.
