The Jackson Laboratory, Bar Harbor, ME

We use mouse models to identify the molecular pathways underlying degenerative motor neuron diseases in humans, such as spinal muscular atrophy (SMA) and amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS, also known as Lou Gehrig's disease). We are also studying mice with degenerative muscle diseases that are models for specific forms of muscular dystrophy in humans.
