Overview of Research


Look up your gene of interest with Aminode!
Aminode supplies fast and easy evolutionary constrained analyses for the human proteome. Check the predicted importance of different regions of your protein!
Aminode was published in 2018 in Scientific Reports.

Lysosomal Storage Disorders

Neuronal ceroid lipofuscinoses (NCLs) are a group of rare inherited neurodegenerative disorders.
At the Sardiello Lab, I was part of the team that revealed the function and mechanism of CLN8, the disease-linked gene for NCL type 8. Our work was published in 2018 in Nature Cell Biology.

More Coming Soon!

There is plenty of work to be done in the field of NCLs. We have more projects in the works regarding NCL type 6 and SCAR7, hopefully coming soon!
