Neuronal ceroid-lipofuscinoses / Batten disease

The Mole lab is particularly interested in neurodegenerative diseases affecting children. We focus on lysosomal disorders, especially the neuronal ceroid lipofuscinoses (NCLs) or Batten disease, which are inherited neurodegenerative diseases that start in childhood. We study their genetics and biology, and are developing new and much-needed therapies.
