Dr. Encalada studies the mechanisms of intracellular transport in neurons using a combination of cell biology, genetics, high-resolution light and electron microscopy, and small and single-molecule approaches in mammalian neurons and Caenorhabditis elegans, to identify and characterize molecular motor regulatory mechanisms. They are also focused on how defective intracellular transport in axons leads to neurodegeneration in models of Alzheimer’s Disease, Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS), prion diseases, and transthyretin amyloidoses.
