Modeling the Inhibition of Calcium Influx in Axon Degeneration

Hometown: Concord, Massachusetts

Department: Neuroscience

Advisor: Randolph Coleman

Project Description:

Axon (Wallerian) degeneration is prevalent in neurodegenerative disease and traumatic brain injury. My Honors Thesis is aimed to elucidate this degeneration pathway by building a computer model and using neuron cultures to better understand the interactions involved. Ultimately, understanding the pathway will provide the insight needed to identify targets for future therapies in treating disease like Alzheimer's and brain injury.
