Repeat Expansions Instigate Supply Chain Issues in Nucleus and Cytoplasm
More information on Eric Wang laboratory
Eric T. Wang – Principal Investigator
Eric received his BA in Biochemistry at Harvard College and PhD from the Harvard-MIT Division of Health Sciences & Technology. Following receipt of an NIH Early Independence Award, he started his lab as a Koch Institute Fellow, and subsequently moved to the University of Florida as an Assistant Professor. His interests lie at the intersection of genomics and cell biology, with a focus on better understanding disease pathogenesis underlying repeat expansion diseases. A family connection led him to focus on myotonic dystrophy, a multi-systemic disease affecting muscle, heart, and brain. He has worked with the Myotonic Dystrophy Foundation, the Muscular Dystrophy Association, and Promise to Kate to raise awareness and funding for research. He co-founded Strength, Science and Stories of Inspiration to support the research of young investigators. He also interacts extensively with drug companies to develop meaningful treatment options for people living with severe neurological diseases.
