Pathogenesis mechanism of prion-like proteins in neurodegenerative diseases
Research in Dr. Xiaobo Mao's laboratory focuses on two core topics: (1) the roles of prion-like proteins and strains in neurodegenerative disorders, including spreading pathways, molecular mechanisms of cell-to-cell transmission, neurotoxicity, and neuroinflammation; (2) the therapeutic developments.
Open Positions If you are enthusiastic about neurodegeneration research and interested in joining as a Postdoctoral Fellow, Graduate Student or Undergraduate Student, please contact us about opportunities within my lab.
