Introducing Deborah Cabin
I’m originally from Baltimore, Maryland. I obtained my BA in biology from Johns Hopkins University., then worked in a surgery lab studying the response in the liver to cardiogenic shock. I obtained my PhD from Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine, studying mouse models of Down Syndrome in Roger Reeves’s lab. My post-doctoral training was at the National Human Genome Research Institute, NIH, where I worked on mouse models of Parkinson’s disease under Robert Nussbaum. I’ve continued working on Parkinson’s disease since coming to the McLaughlin Research Institute in 2006. My work focuses on two main areas: first, what is the normal function of the protein responsible for Parkinson’s disease, and second, what aspect of that protein allows it to convert from a benign to a neurotoxic molecule.
