Research goals

The long-term aim of the lab is to determine how subcellular processes including cytoskeletal dynamics and chromatin organization are coordinated to regulate the nuclear envelope function. As nuclear architecture defects are associated with human diseases such as premature aging syndromes, neurodegenerative disorders and muscular dystrophies, we will identify and characterize new pathways and mechanisms that can be modulated to improve the defects arising in these pathologies, revealing new potential therapeutic opportunities.
