My main focus is on pre-clinical translational research. I am especially interested in degenerative disorders of the nervous system and muscle.

In my current role, I am lead scientist in a number of public-funded projects and collaborative programs with pharmaceutical companies, where we explore the efficacy of novel therapeutic targets, and facilitate the in vivo delivery of oligonucleotides and RNA-based therapeutics to improve the biodistribution these drugs.
