Alison L. O'Neil

Research in the O'Neil lab is focused on understanding the structure-function relationship of proteins involved in neurodegenerative diseases such as ALS (amyotrophic lateral sclerosis; commonly called Lou Gehrig's disease) and Alzheimer's Disease.  By utilizing human stem cells as in vitro models, we can access the unique cell types associated with disease and study downstream consequences of protein-protein interactions.
