Rosemary J. Cater

I am a Postdoctoral Fellow in Filippo Mancia’s lab at Columbia University, New York and am a current Simons Society Junior Fellow. My research focuses on using single-particle cryo-electron microscopy to understand fundamental questions related to the transport of lipidic molecules across membranes; more specifically, I am interested in the mechanisms behind how dietary omega-3 fatty acids are transported into the brain. Prior to my post-doc, I completed my PhD at the University of Sydney under the supervision of Renae Ryan and Robert Vandenberg where I studied the molecular mechanisms utilized by glutamate transporters to regulate synaptic concentrations of glutamate.
