Research Interests:

My lab is interested in cellular and molecular biology of Alzheimer’s disease (AD) and the biology of neuronal stress response. Our research on AD focuses on the functional characterization of genes that are mutated in familial early-onset AD (FAD) to understand their role in synaptic transmission, and elucidate the mechanisms involved the production of pathogenic b -amyloid peptides. We are also investigating the endoplasmic reticulum stress-related gene expression with the aim of identifying common features involved in hypoxic and ischemic neuronal damage, aging, and neurodegeneration.
