Eva LaDow – Neurobiologist

Biotechnology helps scientists understand many aspects of the world around us, from agriculture to medicine. Learn how post-doctoral fellow Eva LaDow uses cutting-edge biotechnological techniques in her work at the Gladstone Institutes of Neurological Disease. She grows neurons, introduces mutant DNA into the neurons, and then analyzes the data to see whether any drugs already approved by the FDA may also be used to treat ALS, or Lou Gehrig’s disease.
