Research synopsis: 

My group seeks to identify early causative events that underlie cognitive deficits associated with ‘normal’ aging and Alzheimer’s disease. We are also interested in understanding factors that appear to protect some individuals from developing Alzheimer's disease against a genetic background that carries mutations known to cause the disease. Our work uses sophisticated computational and statistical methods to merge knowledge from our mouse experiments with human data as well as combining systems genetics with innovative high resolution and high throughput membrane proteomics, viral-based gene transduction approaches, behavioral assays and electrophysiology.
