Research Description

We work primarily on Alzheimer's disease, but we also work on other amyloid-related degenerative diseases, like Parkinson's disease, Huntington's disease and type II diabetes. We are focused on amyloid aggregation and self assembly and the structure of amyloid aggregates. We are especially interested in the mechanisms of amyloid in disease pathogenesis and the development of immunological approaches to therapeutic development.

Requirements to Participate

You need to be a student. You also need to convince me of your commitment to research and your intellectual ability to conduct research. The earlier you start, the better. We are looking for a mutually beneficial experience for the student and your direct laboratory supervisor. This is not like a job in the sense that we have positions open that we are looking to fill. You need to convince me to make space for you in a laboratory that is already crowded. COURSE COMPLETION: Yes OTHER: Participating in lab meetings when possible.

Grade Point Average

Typically an A. If you are not doing A quality work, it is not beneficial for either of us and you will need to consider doing something else.

Time Commitment per Week

9 hrs/wk

Faculty Means of Evaluation

Showing up on time, putting in the required hours and making progress on your project. Your daily lab supervisor will be a graduate student or postdoctoral fellow who will also help evaluate your participation and progress.
