I am Chandrakanth Edamakanti. I received my PhD from the University of Würzburg in neurology. In 2014, I joined the lab of Dr. Puneet Opal at Northwestern University as a Post-Doc. My research focuses are on understanding the early pathological derailments that drive the disease pathogenesis in adult-onset, neurodegenerative disorders, specifically a polyglutamine disorder called Spinocerebellar Ataxia Type 1 (SCA1). My primary focus is to explore the existence of plausible, non-cell autonomous toxicity (non-neuronal or neuronal) of Purkinje cells before the disease onset.
