EXROP Projects: Huda Y. Zoghbi

Huda Y. Zoghbi

Summary

Huda Zoghbi's research interests grew out of her early clinical encounters with patients suffering rare and enigmatic disorders, yet her investigations into the pathogenesis of triplet repeat neurodegenerative diseases and Rett syndrome have had broad implications, not only for other more common diseases but also for our understanding of neurobiology. Conversely, the Zoghbi lab's initial foray into fundamental neurodevelopmental processes governed by Math1 has led to unexpected clinical insights.

Summer Lab Size: 23
