  • - Our lab focuses on the interactions of molecular chaperones with various proteins associated with neurodegenerative disorders. The main focus of the lab is exploring the relationship between the protein Tau and Alzheimer’s Disease, but we have also recently started to explore the relationship between Myocilin and the disease Glaucoma.
  • -My project focuses on understanding the relationship between Myocilin and the co-chaperone Grp-94 in the disease Glaucoma.
