The goal of my lab is to understand the pathways and proteins that regulate microtubule cytoskeletal dynamics and microtubule-based transport, and how these processes go awry in neurodevelopmental and neurodegenerative diseases. We use a variety of in vitro, in vivo and ex vivo techniques in order to fully delve into the complexity of microtubule-dependent processes.

If you are interested in joining the lab, please email Kassandra for more specific projects.
