Ole Wiskow

Ole completed his undergraduate studies at the Technical University Munich in Germany and his postgraduate studies at the University of Cambridge, U.K. He has been a postdoctoral fellow in the Eggan lab since 2011. In the Eggan lab Ole is focused on the assessment of functional consequences of ALS-causing mutations in disease relevant cell types like astrocytes and motor neurons.

Ole works on the assessment of functional consequences of ALS-causing mutations in disease-relevant cell types.


Aaron Burberry

Aaron received his undergraduate degree in Biochemistry from SUNY at Buffalo.  Aaron went on to obtain his PhD from the University of Michigan under the guidance of Gabriel Nunez.  At Michigan, Aaron studied the importance of pattern recognition receptor signaling in the mobilization response of hematopoietic stem cells during systemic inflammation.  For his post-doctoral studies, Aaron studies the organismal, cellular and molecular mechanisms which contribute to autoimmunity in C9orf72 loss of function mutant animals.  In his spare time, Aaron enjoys hiking, volleyball, and spending quality time with his wife and dog.


Kevin Smith

Kevin completed a Bachelor of Medical Science (majoring in neuroscience and physiology) from 2007-2009, then a Bachelor of Science (Honours) in 2010 and finally a PhD from 2011-2015. All were undertaken at Flinders University of South Australia.  During his PhD Kevin characterized neurotrophin receptor p75NTR-expressing motor neurons in the ALS mouse model SOD1 (G93A) and developed a non-viral p75NTR-targeted gene delivery complex called the ‘immunogene.’  When he is not playing with cells in the lab, Kevin enjoys playing and spectating competitive video games as well as exploring new cites and traveling to exotic destinations.
