Mgr. Marek Rajman, PhD

Since February 2007 until June 2008 dr. Rajman worked as a research assistant in the Laboratory of Pharmacological Endocrinology, Prof. D. Ježová, Institute of Experimental Endocrinology, SASci, Bratislava, Slovak Republic. He contributed to the project: Adult neurogenesis in animal model of anhedonia.

This is what he wrote about his scientific career:

“In 2008 I have started postdoctoral stay in the lab of prof. Mike Fainzilber at Weizmann Institute of Science in Israel. In Mike’s lab I used different proteomic approaches to identify proteins playing important role in neuronal growth and injury responses in peripheral nervous system. Only recently my findings were published in eNeuro Journal.

In September 2011 I joined lab of prof. Gerhard Schratt at Marburg University in Germany. Here I was interested to decipher role of post-transcriptional regulation in homeostatic plasticity in primary hippocampal neurons. We identified that interaction of miR-129-5p and Rbfox1 (RNA binding protein) is required for homeostatic response of hippocampal neurons to prolonged increased activity. Our findings were published in EMBO Journal.

In June 2018 I have joined UCB Biopharma SPRL in Belgium as a senior scientist in Epilepsy team.”
