Alex Tang

Lecturer

I completed my PhD with A/Prof Jenny Rodger, followed by post-doc training with Asst/Prof Marylka Uusisaari at the Okinawa Institute of Science and Technology (OIST). After my time in Japan, I returned to Perth on a combined lecturing and research position at UWA and the Perron Institute. With funding from the Raine Medical Research Foundation and the Neurotrauma Research Program, I established a small team within the Brain Plasticity lab. The focus of this team is to understand and develop interventions that promote synaptic and axonal plasticity in the intact brain and after neurotrauma.
