        Huntington's Disease

        Photo: Neil AroninMy clinical interests focus on neuroendocrinology (pituitary and hypothalamic diseases), inherited endocrine diseases, and adrenal problems. We are currently conducting research in the treatment of patients with impaired pituitary function. My basic research centers on the pathogensis of neurodegenerative diseases, especially Parkinson's disease and Huntington's disease.

        Rotation Projects

        Potential Rotation Projects

        Project #1: Molecular Mechanisms in the Pathogenesis of Neurodegenerative Disease. The student can select projects emphasizing either molecular mechanisms of huntingtin in trafficking in neurons or receptor stimulated effects on gene expression in neurons. Techniques include:

        1. Generation of fusion proteins, raising antisera
        2. Preparation of organelles
        3. Immunocytochemistry, light microscopy and electron microscopy
        4. Immunoprecipitation methods
        5. PCR
        6. Protein separation techniques, gel electrophoresis, immunoblotting
        7. Autoradiography
