Microtubule dysfunction has emerged as a common factor in a variety of neurodegenerative diseases, and as such is an interesting new therapeutic target for these disorders. My project focuses on studying a function-disrupting mutation to the neuronal alpha tubulin, Tuba1a, that leads to degeneration of motor function in mice. We are using this Tuba1aND allele to dissect the interaction between microtubule dysfunction and neurodegenerative disease.
