Biography

Research in my lab is focused on the two following areas:

  • Tau: a protein involved in the development of pathology in Alzheimer’s disease, other dementias and related disorders. Our recent work is focusing on how abnormal formations of tau at sites involved in neural connectivity compromises the normal function of nerve cells.
  • Alpha-synuclein: a protein present in Lewy bodies in the brains of people with Parkinson’s disease, dementia with Lewy bodies, multiple system atrophy and related disorders. We are investigating the pathological role of alpha-synuclein in these disorders.
