  • Keywords:
    cognitive function, circadian rhythms, Alzheimer's, in vitro optogenetics, molecular biology, electrophysiology, imaging, in vivo microdialysis, biochemical peptide detection assays

  • Research:
    The Musiek Lab is focused on identifying and understanding molecular mechanisms of neurodegeneration in the mammalian brain. They study the circadian clock system and how it regulates oxidative stress, neuroinflammation, and neurodegeneration.

    Areas of current interest include:

    Circadian clocks in Alzheimer's Disease pathogenesis
    Regulation of brain oxidative stress and neuroinflammation by the circadian clock
    Interplay between aging, the circadian clock, and neurodegeneration
    Therapeutic targeting of oxidative stress in Alzheimer's Disease
