Personal profile

Area of Expertise

I aim to understand the molecular basis for locomotor impairment in aging and Parkinson's disease. My immediate and long-term goals are to discover molecular, pharmacological, and non-invasive (exercise, calorie restriction) approaches that can target proteins associated with motor impairment, thereby reducing or eliminating locomotor impairment associated with aging and Parkinson’s disease.
