We work at the last frontier of biology, the brain. Our research is directed in two NIH-supported areas: 1) Determine the coding of memory in engineered live neuronal networks reconstructed from the hippocampus 2) epigenetic and redox control of neuron metabolism, aging and Alzheimer disease (AD). We hypothesize that aging is the last stage of development controlled by epigenetics.
