Al La Spada, M.D., Ph.D.
Professor of Pediatrics and Cellular and Molecular Medicine
Pathways/processes: Neurogenetics; autophagy; protein turnover; transcription regulation; non-coding RNAs; mitochondrial function
In the La Spada laboratory, we apply the tools of genetics, genomics, biochemistry and neuroscience to understand how neurons function, to determine mechanisms of neurodegenerative disease, and to develop meaningful therapies for neurological disorders.
