    Collapse Overview
    My long-term research interests involve the development of a comprehensive understanding of cellular and molecular dysfunctions occurring early in Sporadic Alzheimer’s disease (SAD). During my training, I particularly investigated how GWAS identified risk factors for Alzheimer’s disease (AD), such as aging and traumatic brain injury, influence disease progression and severity. Using a diversified array of SAD models such as; human inducible pluripotent stem cell (hIPSC) derived neurons, primary cell cultures and in vivo experiments using mice and rats. I investigate how canonical disease-associated pathways were affected by the presence of AD associated-risk factors, which allowed us to develop a better understanding of how risk factors are mechanistically coupled with AD etiology.

    Altmetrics Details PMC Citations indicate the number of times the publication was cited by articles in PubMed Central, and the Altmetric score represents citations in news articles and social media. (Note that publications are often cited in additional ways that are not shown here.) Fields are based on how the National Library of Medicine (NLM) classifies the publication's journal and might not represent the specific topic of the publication. Translation tags are based on the publication type and the MeSH terms NLM assigns to the publication. Some publications (especially newer ones and publications not in PubMed) might not yet be assigned Field or Translation tags.) Click a Field or Translation tag to filter the publications.
