The Wong Lab aims to decipher the inter- and intra-cellular mechanisms that regulate brain cell metabolism. The major research foci include neuron-glia metabolic crosstalk, bioenergetics, lipid signaling and metabolism, and inter-organelle signaling. We leverage human cell, mouse, and Drosophila models to uncover novel pathways and mechanisms that underlie pathogenesis and protection in neurodegenerative diseases such as Alzheimer’s and ALS.
