Research Interests

I am currently studying the relationship between changes in synaptic homeostasis and changes in Amyloid precursor protein expression. I am treating cultured rat neurons to alter synaptic transmission and measuring APP expression with RT-qPCR and immunofluorescence imaging. I hope to investigate potential shared disease pathways of Alzheimer’s disease and epilepsy.
