Jennifer McDonough

The McDonough lab is focused on identifying neuroprotective therapies for multiple sclerosis (MS).  This disease is the leading cause of neurological disability in young adults. 

Ongoing projects in the lab include investigating the role of changes in methionine metabolism and histone methylation in MS pathology.  We have found that decreased levels of methyl donors S-adenosylmethionine and betaine are linked to mitochondrial defects in MS.
