Science for Admin
Neal Bennett, PhD
Many diseases, particularly neurodegenerative diseases, are associated with a failure of cells to maintain sufficient energy levels. In this seminar, Neal Bennett of the Nakamura Lab will describe his work screening the entire genome to identify which genes control cellular energy levels in neurons.
Bennett completed his PhD at Rutgers University, where he investigated the potential of stem cell transplantation as a treatment for Parkinson’s disease. In the Nakamura Lab, he is studying how disruptions to cellular energy levels contribute to neurodegeneration, with the goal of identifying novel therapeutic strategies.
A monthly tradition for over 25 years, Science for Admin is a forum for Gladstone scientists to share their latest research with their administrative colleagues.
