Welcome to the Garcia Lab. Our goal is to understand how nucleotide repeat expansions that result in expanded RNAs cause broad cellular dysfunction and disease. A number of neuromuscular degenerative disorders are associated with the presence of toxic, repeat-bearing RNAs in the cell.
We aim to investigate the distinct mechanisms that regulate these pathogenic processes, with a particular emphasis on Myotonic Dystrophy.
