Dr Victor Anggono

Victor received his PhD in 2007 from the University of Sydney, studying the role of dynamin phosphorylation in presynaptic vesicle recycling. Supported by an NHMRC CJ Martin and a Human Frontier Science Program Fellowship, he then pursued his postdoctoral training at the Johns Hopkins University in Baltimore, USA, investigating the molecular mechanisms of glutamate receptor trafficking in the postsynaptic compartment. In 2012, Dr Anggono returned to Australia and joined the Queensland Brain Institute at the University of Queensland, where he is currently a Senior Research Fellow and Group Leader at the Clem Jones Centre for Ageing Dementia Research. His research aims to understand the molecular mechanisms of synaptic vesicle and glutamate receptor trafficking in neurons, processes that are essential for synaptic transmission, plasticity, learning and memory, and how their dysregulations impact on the pathophysiology of neurodegenerative diseases and neuropsychiatric disorders.
