Profile Summary

Eduardo Rosa-Molinar, Ph.D. is a Professor of Pharmacology and Toxicology and Neuroscience Graduate Program (http://pharmtox.ku.edu/all-faculty; http://neuroscience.ku.edu/faculty-members) and Director of the Microscopy and Analytical Imaging Research Resource Core Laboratory (http://mai.ku.edu/eduardo-rosa-molinar-phd) at the University of Kansas. He also serves as Course Director of the Immunohistochemistry and Microscopy, a special topic course taught at the Marine Biological Laboratory, Woods Hole, MA (http://www.mbl.edu/education/special-topics-courses/immunohistochemistry-and-microscopy-ihcm/). Until June 2015, he was a tenured Professor of Integrative Anatomy and Neurobiology, University of Puerto Rico-Rio Piedras, San Juan Puerto Rico

His research focuses on “neural microcircuits", a specific pattern of interconnections between neurons and synapses within a specific region of the central nervous system (i.e., spinal cord); he images and studies the three-dimensional (3-D) nano-scale architecture of “mixed synapses”, a poorly studied synapse that combines the features of both chemical and electrical synapses (i.e., gap junction). To this end, he develops quantitative immuno-correlative photon- and electron-based imaging technologies required to image and analyze in 3-D the nanoscale membrane organization of mixed synapses’ pre-and post-synaptic membrane proteins.
