My lab uses the zebrafish model to understand molecular mechanisms of common human neurodegenerative diseases such as Spinal Muscular Atrophy (SMA) and Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS). We also established a Medaka fish model for human osteoporosis that allows drug screening and live imaging of bone cell behavior during bone degeneration and repair.
