Overview

 - The Heiman lab aims to understand how neuronal identity is established and maintained, and how the molecular identity of a neuron determines its susceptibility to disease. Lab members use biochemical, genetic, and molecular biological tools, including mouse models of neurodegenerative diseases and a novel methodology termed Translating Ribosome Affinity Purification (TRAP) that allows molecular profiling of individual types of neurons from within the mammalian brain.
