Welcome to the Geisler Laboratory

The goal of our lab is to identify new therapeutic agents that can be translated into relevant treatment strategies for patients suffering from peripheral neuropathies. We integrate genetic data from patients and analysis of patient-derived neurons with information from cell and animal models to gain insight into molecular mechanisms underlying axon degeneration and regeneration.
