My current research focus is on the intersection of systems biology and neurodegenerative disease. Specifically, ongoing work in my laboratory is focusing on computational analysis of RNA expression data from Alzheimer’s disease brain tissue, with the goal of identifying master regulators of gene expression in Alzheimer’s disease that contribute to both synaptic dysfunction as well as microglial dysfunction and subsequent dysregulation of phagocytosis. We have identified several putative master regulators relevant to AD pathogenesis, and we are currently characterizing associated gene regulatory networks.
