Dr. Shen's laboratory focuses on elucidation of the pathogenic mechanisms
of Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s diseases. They employ a multidis
approach based on the generation and analysis of mouse models, with the
goal of understanding how pathogenic mutations perturb the normal in vivo
function of gene products linked to these disorders.
