My lab studies cytoskeletal organizations and their involvement in the pathogenesis in neurodegenerative diseases and cancer. Our current research topics include the actin binding proteins filamin and delta-catenin in their interactions with Alzheimer’s disease protein presenilin and potential functions in synaptic remodeling. We are also interested in understanding how neural gene dysregulation affects other aging disorders such as cancer.
