Accumulation of the RNA binding protein TDP43 disrupts RNA stability and protein synthesis in ALS and FTD

With the kind support of Oxford Nanoimaging

Speaker: Professor Sami Barmada, MD PhD (Assistant Professor of Neurology, University of Michigan)

Sami Barmada’s research focuses on the pathologic overlap between amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) and frontotemporal dementia (FTD), establishing patient-derived in vitro models of neuronal and astroglial sub-types and analysing them with advanced automated imaging platform and molecular visualization tools. He is an assistant professor of neurology at University of Michigan Medical School and practices as a neurologist with dementia and motor neuron disease patients.
