My research focuses on identifying the genetic basis for neurodegenerative diseases such as Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis and Alzheimer’s disease with a particular focus on the role of microRNAs and noncoding RNAs. I work to establish parameters for safe and effective gene knockdown using recombinant adeno-associated viral vectors.
