Areas of clinical expertise/research interests: The cellular and molecular basis of neuronal synapse formation and regeneration. In particular, our focus is (i) on defining how the nerve-derived signaling factor, agrin, directs the formation of the neuromuscular synapse; and (ii) determining whether agrin has a similar, inductive role in the formation of cholinergic interneuronal synapses.
