Description:

TDP-43 Pathology and Neuronal Vulnerability in ALS

P. Hande Ozdinler, PhD
Associate Professor, Department of Neurology, Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine

Dr. Ozdinler received training in the fields of cell biology, anatomy and neuroscience. Her laboratory is focused on understanding the molecular and cellular basis of selective vulnerability, with a focus on upper motor neurons. Even though different neuron populations display early vulnerability and progressive degeneration in different diseases, some of the cellular pathologies are shared and common. TDP43 pathology is a very good example to these shared pathologies, observed in amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS), Alzheimer’s Disease, and ALS with frontal temporal dementia (ALS/FTLD).

In her talk, Dr. Ozdinler will discuss TDP-43 pathology and its impact on neuronal vulnerability and degeneration.
