While he was a postdoctoral fellow in Dr. Malinow’s lab, Dr. Julius Zhu carried out experiments designed to define the set of proteins which are affected in Fragile X syndrome and understand how they function together. In 2002, Dr. Zhu started his own lab at the University of Virginia where he is continuing his Fragile X work with new funding from FRAXA. More information.
