Support our research on CMT

Ohio State University has established a Charcot-Marie-Tooth Disease Type 2E Research Fund to support research on the mechanisms and treatment of Charcot-Marie-Tooth disease caused by mutations in neurofilament protein L

Check out the Science Sketch video that accompanies our article on The Role of Neurofilament Transport in the Radial Growth of Myelinated Axons, published in Molecular Biology of the Cell


We are cell biologists in the Department of Neuroscience at Ohio State University. We study the cytoskeleton of nerve cells and the mechanism of axonal transport.

Our main focus is the biology neurofilaments in health and disease. We use a broad range of cellular and molecular techniques to study the transport and assembly dynamics of neurofilaments in nerve cells.

Our core expertise is in light microscopy, protein biochemistry and nerve cell culture.
