Research Statement:

My research focuses on development of therapeutics to target protein-misfolding disorders, in particular Alzheimer’s disease. Stemming from the basic research of protein-lipid interactions, we identified a family of compounds that inhibit the formation of toxic soluble aggregates in Alzheimer’s disease that has added to our understanding of disease progression and human clinical trials.
