    My research interest is to understand and develop treatments for neurodegenerative diseases, in particular Parkinson's disease (PD) and Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS). I work in to investigating mechanisms linked to genetic and molecular pathways, explore therapeutic approaches, and identify biomarkers that may be used to monitor disease, and seek safe neuroprotective strategies to prevent, slow or stop the death of brain cells.




    In human, the cerebral cortex is the control center of sensory and motor. Structural changes and functional disorders involve in the cerebral cortex, such as PD and ALS / FTD. Technical and ethical challenges have limited our understanding of the pathological processes directly from human patient, and differences in the neocortical structure, complex neuronal circuits and behavioral paradigms preclude translating pathological findings from mouse models to the human condition. We use non-human primate models to simulate the characteristics of human diseases. By combining technologies of multiple disciplines to track and analyze the pathological process, explore the pathogenesis of diseases, and find effective solutions of disease treatment.
