Our Areas of Focus
PNS & CNS Regeneration
We performed the first systems approach to study neural repair mechanism by pioneering work in functional genomics.
Reduced expression of frataxin (Fxn) is the cause of Friedreich’s ataxia (FRDA), an early-onset neurodegenerative disease resulting in early mortality.
Bioinformatics & Systems Biology
We have established meta-analyses system biology pipelines for meaningful interpretation of complex biological process.
