Richie Sapp, who began working in the Shatz lab as an undergraduate, was co-first author on a paper in the esteemed journal Science Translational Medicine, describing the role that the PirB protein plays in preventing the formation of new connections between neurons. The team developed a decoy drug that allowed mice to form new connections as adults, leading to findings that could eventually help people recover from stroke, forms of blindness and Alzheimer's disease.
