Abnormal gene copying seen in tauopathy fruit fly models

August 23, 2018

Congratulations to Dr. Bess Frost on her new publication in Nature Neuroscience, “Pathogenic tau-induced piRNA depletion promotes neuronal death through transposable element dysregulation in neurodegenerative tauopathies.” The Frost laboratory studies fundamental processes in cell biology that drive neurodegeneration and employs a multi-system approach to rapidly identify, test, and validate hypotheses. The study, which was spearheaded […]
