Understanding the mechanism of tau aggregation, propagation and cellular machinery involved in aggregated tau degradation would help in identifying therapeutic targets for tauopathies (Alzheimer’s disease, PSP, CTE, FTLD, etc.) and other neurodegenerative diseases. The thesis is focused on studying tau aggregate spreading mechanisms, identifying small molecule inhibitors of tau misfolding and aggregation using in vitro aggregation assays, cell biology, biochemistry and microscopy techniques.
