My lab is interested in studying the mechanisms that prevent protein misfolding and accumulation in neurodegenerative diseases, such as molecular chaperones and autophagy. While the relevance of these mechanisms to neurodegeneration has been widely studied in neurons, their importance in glial cells such as astrocytes, has not received as much attention so far. Research in the lab is funded by an MRC Career Development Award to study chaperones as molecular targets to prevent Alzheimer’s disease in the context of astrocyte-neuron communication.
