"Spatiotemporal dynamics of molecular pathology in ALS"
Dr Phatnani’s group builds tools and resources for the ALS-FTD community and serves as the hub of collaborative interactions that use genomics data to understand the molecular basis of disease. They integrate multiple data types (clinical phenotyping, histopathology, spatially resolved transcriptomic and proteomic data, etc.) across multiple scales (e.g., population-level, tissue-level, and single-cell level). They are particularly interested in understanding how dysfunctional intercellular interactions contribute to the pathophysiology of ALS-FTD.
