Unbiased Sacsin Client Identification and Genetic Intervention in a Mouse Model of ARSACS- Dr. Stephen Strack

In Current Research by ARSACS

This research project utilizes Sacs KO mice to answer two fundamental questions:
1) Can we leverage recent advances in quantitative proteomics to uncover early biomarkers and perhaps drivers of ARSACS pathology in the cerebellum?
2) Can genetic modulation of the mitochondrial fission/fusion equilibrium counteract cerebellar symptoms and PC degeneration? Results from this research are expected to advance our understanding of ARSACS disease mechanisms and point to avenues for therapeutic intervention.

Duration: one year
Grant: $50,000
