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).  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.
