About Desplats Lab UCSD
Research in our lab is aimed at elucidating the dynamic mechanisms of DNA methylation, which might contribute to onset and progression of the most prevalent neurodegenerative diseases of the elderly, Parkinson’s and Alzheimer’s. At the center of our work is a strong interest in translational neuroscience, therefore we combine aspects of cellular physiology and molecular neuroscience, integrating the analysis of human postmortem brain samples, transgenic animals and cellular models to address mechanistic questions, while identifying therapeutic targets and providing novel diagnostic tools.
