Molecular characterization of pathogenetic mechanisms leading to neurological inherited diseases represents the main goal of the group. Most projects arose from original molecular genetics approach that allowed the identification of the genetic determinants of the disease. In the last years, the lab is focusing on dissecting the intimate mechanisms of neuronal degeneration by a range of complementary approaches ranging from cellular and animal models to integrating genomics and proteomics.
