Transcriptional Regulation and Neurodegenerative Disease

We integrate multiple cutting-edge computational and experimental approaches to study gene transcriptional regulation in the nervous system and  how changes in the regulation contribute to neurodegenerative diseases such as Alzheimer’s disease (AD), Parkinson disease (PD) and Lewy body diseases (LBDs).
