Research

We are broadly interested in understanding the molecular and cellular mechanisms of neurodegeneration, RNA metabolism and local translation in neural degeneration, axon and synapse loss after injury and in disease. Specific diseases of interest are listed below. We have also included links to disease definitions, treatments, prognoses, and available clinical trials maintained by the NIH National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke.
