Our lab focuses on the biology and pathology of upper motor neurons with respect to health and neurodegeneration.  Ozdinler Lab is a member of Chemistry of Life Processes InstituteLes Turner ALS Center , Mesulam Center for Cognitive Neurology and Alzheimer's Disease, and Robert H. Lurie Comprehensive Cancer Research Centers at Northwestern.  Our overall goals are to reveal the underlying causes of upper motor neuron vulnerability and to develop effective treatment strategies for diseases that affect voluntary movement.
