As a PhD candidate at StorkLab, I am conducting research focused on neurodegeneration. My research encompasses behavioral and biochemical approaches to investigate progression and intervention time-windows of the phenotypes and the pathology associated with mouse models of neurodegenerative diseases. Ultimately, my aim is to develop novel strategies for prevention or rescue of these phenotypes. To this end, I use genetic anti-sense approaches, as well as drugs that target various pathways that are known to play important modulatory roles in neurodegeneration. I make use of stereotaxy and various drug delivery systems to achieve accurate and timely delivery of these substances that can potentially alleviate neurodegeneration.
