Specializing in inherited peripheral nerve diseases and myelin biology. My research has two arms – basic science and clinical research. Research focuses on acquiring a better understanding of Schwann cell biology, its applications in pathogenesis of inherited peripheral nervous diseases, and identifying molecular targets for therapeutic development.
Inherited peripheral nerve diseases, motor neuron diseases
Nerve conduction study, genetic variant analysis, Schwann cell / neuron co-culture, genetically manipulated animal models, cell biology / protein chemistry, peripheral nerve MRI
