Translational Neurobiology Research

Understanding neurodegenerative diseases. Engineering tools. 
Identifying biomarkers. Developing therapies.

Our team aims to provide better understanding of the underlying disease mechanisms related to Alzheimer’s disease (AD) and Parkinson’s disease (PD). Our research interest focuses on studying two major types of proteins namely, tumor necrosis factor receptors (TNF receptors) and intrinsically disordered proteins (IDPs), and their implications behind AD and PD. Our work lies in the interface between engineering and medicine where we employ a multidisciplinary approach and a variety of techniques, including computational and bioinformatics analysis as well as experimental methods (cell-based assays, animal studies and working with post-mortem human tissues), to address our scientific questions. For more information regarding our projects, please check out the Research page.
