Dr. Bonini’s research focuses on amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS), a rapidly progressive motor neuron disease, and on frontotemporal dementia, the second most common form of dementia. She will apply a multidisciplinary approach spanning fruit fly disease models to patient-derived tissues to study biological pathways and risk factors that contribute to these diseases, and that may point to new avenues for treatment.
