Area of Research: 

My PhD thesis focused on developing a miR-based therapeutic strategy towards Machado-Joseph disease (MJD) by identifying the differentially expressed miRNA’s in the striatal lentiviral MJD mouse model and then re-establishing the normal levels of the candidate microRNA in the striatal lentiviral model.
