Research from the Benitez Lab


The Benitez Lab is focused on a combination of state-of-the-art approaches in human genetic discoveries, functional genomic analyses with in vitro, and in vivo in AD or PD mouse models experiments. For example, our research has included:

  • Thousands of whole exome sequencing and GWAS data
  • Single nuclei RNA-sequencing from Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s disease patients, proteomic data, Bulk-RNA sequencing data
  • CRISPR/Cas9-corrected patient-derived iPS cells and primary cells
  • Stereotaxic delivery of Adeno-associated virus (AAV) or alpha-Synuclein preformed fibrils
