Research Interests

My research interest is to understand the pathobiology of rare and undiagnosed neurological diseases. By taking advantage of next-generation sequencing data of the patients and the success of variant functional assessment using the humanized fruit-fly model, I will identify novel human disease genes. Importantly, I will further dissect the biological mechanisms of these new disease genes with a particular focus on conserved signaling pathways. Unraveling the biology of rare neurological conditions can be immensely helpful for the therapeutic development and proper disease management; and, it will also shed light on more common disease mechanisms.
