    As the Chief Scientific Officer for the Bluefield Project to Cure Frontotemporal Dementia, I work to enable and accelerate basic, clinical and translational research in frontotemporal dementia (FTD) caused by mutations in the lysosomal protein progranulin (GRN). With our aggressive timeline to find a cure or therapy for GRN-FTD, I foster highly focused, rapid and collaborative discovery research and engage with industry partners to advance drug development for this devastating disease.

    Altmetrics Details PMC Citations indicate the number of times the publication was cited by articles in PubMed Central, and the Altmetric score represents citations in news articles and social media. (Note that publications are often cited in additional ways that are not shown here.) Fields are based on how the National Library of Medicine (NLM) classifies the publication's journal and might not represent the specific topic of the publication. Translation tags are based on the publication type and the MeSH terms NLM assigns to the publication. Some publications (especially newer ones and publications not in PubMed) might not yet be assigned Field or Translation tags.) Click a Field or Translation tag to filter the publications.
