ALS Research update from Brandeis

Dr. Rodal’s lab continues to investigate  how TDP-43 leads to growth signaling defects in the fruit fly model as well as  continuing to pursue the role of calcium channels in their mammalian models of ALS. Their progress report summarizes the past four years of research supported by the BMF and gives a look into next steps (how relevant are these pathways for progression of cellular pathology in human patients?). For a more detailed version of their work, please see the unabridged version.

BMF for ALS “Postdoctural Fellow” will examine a Protein’s Effect in Human Cells
