Kim lab introduction
The broad interest of Kim lab is to understand the pathogenic mechanisms of Alzheimer’s disease and other related neurodegenerative diseases and to identify novel therapeutic targets. Current research efforts aim to understand the roles of Apolipoprotein (ApoE) and ApoE-regulating proteins, such as ABCA1, LDLR, and IDOL, in Alzheimer’s disease. We are also interested in studying the role of microRNAs and other non-coding RNAs in Alzheimer’s disease and other neurodegenerative diseases.
