Lab Members:

Marc Tambini, MD PhD.  I am a postdoctoral scientist in the lab of Dr. D'Adamio, whose focus in on the etiology of Alzheimer's disease.  My current research interests include understanding the normal function of the Amyloid Precursor Protein, the role of Bri2 at the synapse, and the generation of new rodent models of AD.  My previous doctoral work investigated the contribution of the sporadic AD gene APOE in the upregulated contact between ER and mitochondria.


Tao Yin. I am a graduate student with Dr. Luciano D'Adamio and interested in molecular mechanism of amyloid precursor protein processing and its associated regulation. I received my undergraduate degree in bioengineering in China and M.S degree in biochemistry in Georgetown university. Prior to joining the PhD program, I assisted Dr. Kathleen Maguire-Zeiss to investigate matrix metallopeptidase function in HIV Associated Neurocognitive Disorders.
