Dr. Croteau received her Ph.D. from Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine. She works closely with Dr. Vilhelm Bohr to manage the group on DNA repair, premature-aging disorders and mitochondrial function.
We work in three major areas. First, we are investigating how DNA repair deficiencies impact the progression of Alzheimer’s disease in mouse and worm models. Second, we are trying to understand the biological implications of losing one of the five human RecQ helicases. Third, we are investigating how DNA repair deficiencies impact the ability of mice to recover from stress.
