Personal profile


Dr Marco Morsch is a mid career neuroscientist, senior lecturer, and team leader at Macquarie University with a main focus on advancing our understanding of neuronal communication and cell-cell interactions. His unique experimental skills and strong understanding of fundamental biological mechanisms allowed him to make important advances in the study of neurological diseases and, more recently, in the underlying principles of neuron-glia interactions in the healthy and stressed nervous system.
