Current Research Focus

Research in the Davidson Laboratory is focused on inherited genetic diseases that cause central nervous system dysfunction, with a focus on (1) recessive, childhood onset neurodegenerative disease, such as the lysosomal storage diseases mucopolysaccharidoses and Battens disease; and (2) dominant genetic diseases, specifically CAG repeat disorders, Huntington’s disease and spinal cerebellar ataxia, and (3), understanding how noncoding RNAs participate in neural development and neurodegenerative disease processes.
