This multi-disciplinary project combines cutting-edge molecular cell biology, neurobiological, and biochemical (lipid analysis) approaches to reveal novel links between organelle membrane proteins, lipid metabolism, and neurodegenerative disorders. It will unveil new biomedical principles, the functions of novel lipid-binding proteins, and new avenues for the treatment of neurodegenerative disorders.
