Patrice Fort Lab

Welcome to the Fort Lab

Our laboratory primarily focuses on neurodegenerative disorders and the molecular mechanisms involved. We seek to understand how neurodegenerative disorders affect intrinsic protective mechanisms leading to cell death and functional deficits. In parallel, we are also using discovery approaches in human tissues to identify previously unknown molecular mechanisms which could point out to novel therapeutic targets. The ultimate goal of our laboratory is to develop methods to improve cellular survival and maintain or restore neuronal function. Learn more.
