Our lab uses a combination of molecular, cellular, genetic, and behavioral approaches to further dissect the pathogenic mechanisms of Frontotemporal Dementia and Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis with a focus on mutant CHMP2B, progranulin and C9ORF72. We will identify common underlying pathways as potential targets for therapeutic interventions. To this end, multiple experimental systems will be utilized, including Drosophila, mouse models, and patient-specific induced pluripotent stem (iPS) cells.
