Neurons and glia appear in a 3d culture derived from IPSCs

Research

Our laboratory is interested in elucidating the pathogenic mechanisms underlying neurological disorders that impact learning and memory. We take multidisciplinary, network-level approaches to decipher the molecular, cellular, and circuit basis of neurodegenerative disorders.

Our three main approaches are:

1) Transcriptomic and epigenomic analysis of brain disorders. Learn more.

2) Systems level analysis of neurodegeneration. Learn more.

3) Using human induced pluripotent stem cells (iPSCs) and tissue bioengineering to model Alzheimer’s disease and Down syndrome. Learn more.
