Damiano Angoli (University of Milan) carried out his degree in Biology with Professor Enzo Wanke at the University of Milan where he examined the effects of intracellular pH on cell apoptosis and learned about electrophysiology. A visit to Vancouver, following an invitation, convinced Damiano to take himself and his piano to the west coast of Canada. He was a postdoc fellow at Simon Fraser University till 2005 then he worked at University of British Columbia for the Cardiovascuolar Research Group, multi-tasking pacemaker channel electrophysiologist. He joined the lab January 2013 after a visit in April 2012.


Ben joined the lab as a postdoc after completing his PhD in Pharmacology and Neuroscience at Southern Illinois University School of Medicine, working with Dr. Don Caspary. He worked primarily on understanding age-related plasticity in GABAAR function and response properties of neurons in the auditory thalamus. Broadly, Ben is interested in understanding the neural basis for higher-level processes like attention, cognition, choice and personality.
