Stefanie Geisler, MD
The goal of the Geisler lab is to identify new therapeutic agents that can be translated into relevant treatment strategies for patients suffering from peripheral neuropathies. We integrate genetic data from patients and analysis of patient-derived neurons with information from cell and animal models to gain insight into molecular mechanisms underlying axon degeneration and regeneration.
Timothy Miller, MD, PhD
The Miller lab is dedicated to understanding neurodegenerative diseases, such as amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) and dementias in order to develop new, effective and safe treatments. Part of the Department of Neurology at Washington University School of Medicine in St. Louis, the Miller lab is headed by Timothy M. Miller, MD, PhD, the David Clayson Professor of Neurology. Miller is a national leader in translational neuroscience and new therapeutic approaches for neurodegenerative diseases.
Alan Pestronk, MD
Research interests: Neuromuscular disorders
Conrad Weihl, MD, PhD
The Weihl lab's goal is to understand the molecular mechanisms of protein inclusion formation, disaggregation and clearance in myodegenerative (skeletal muscle) and neurodegenerative diseases.
