David J. Simon   Assistant Professor

The Simon laboratory studies how individual neurons, unlike almost all other cell types in the body, survive for a lifetime. The lab asks how insults such as genetic mutation, injury or inflammation disrupt these survival programs to promote neurodegeneration. The lab also employs a range of molecular and biochemical techniques with the ultimate goals of understanding the molecular basis of neurodegeneration and identifying novel therapeutic targets.
