Molecular approaches to neurodegenerative disease

Haiyang Yu Lab

Mechanisms of neurodegeneration

The Yu Lab is interested in the disease mechanisms behind age-related neurodegeneration. We are dedicated to finding a treatment for neurodegenerative diseases, such as frontotemporal dementia and Lou Gehrig's disease (ALS), etc.

We currently explore three directions:

  • The molecular mechanisms of anisosome formation in cells
  • TDP-43 aggregation and neuronal RNA bodies
  • New therapies for neurodegeneration
