Dr Anson Tan

Postdoctoral Research Fellow

Queensland Brain Institute


Anson received his PhD in 2018 from the University of Melbourne and continued his study on the molecular basis of membrane trafficking and protein sorting in the Golgi with Professor Paul Gleeson. In 2020, Dr Tan joined the Queensland Brain Institute at the University of Queensland, where he is currently a Postdoctoral Research Fellow at the Clem Jones Centre for Ageing Dementia Research. His research at the Anggono laboratory aims to understand the molecular mechanisms of membrane trafficking in neurons, processes that are essential for synaptic transmission, plasticity, learning and memory, and how their dysregulation led to neurodegenerative diseases and neuropsychiatric disorders. Dr Tan was recently awarded the UQ Postdoctoral Researcher Retention Fellowship (University of Queensland, 2022).
