Dr. Judith Steen is an Associate Professor of Neurobiology at Harvard Medical School, a member of the Harvard Stem Cell Institute, and the Director of the Neuroproteomics Laboratory in the F. M. Kirby Neuroscience Center at Boston Children’s Hospital. Her laboratory studies neuroscience using systems biology approaches. Prof. Steen’s laboratory develops novel qualitative and quantitative methodologies using mass spectrometry and computational approaches, interfacing omics data with clinical and genetic information. The tools developed by the Steen Laboratory are then applied to neurobiology. The current focus is to understand why neurodegeneration results from aging, infection, injury, and genetic variations. Our goal is to use the information provided by our quantitative proteomics to prevent neurodegeneration or promote regeneration after injury. Our interests include Alzheimer’s Disease, Parkinson’s Disease, Frontotemporal Degeneration, Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis, viral infection, and Central Nervous System injury
