Courtney Hatton

Research Assistant II

Uses gene therapy approaches to treat axonal neuropathies in mouse models of Charcot-Marie-Tooth (CMT) disease.

I started my research career working in virology, antibody development and immunochemistry. Following a break in education I returned to the University of Maine and where I studied haploid induction in embryonic plant cells. After receiving my bachelors degree in 2019, I was selected to be a Post-Baccalaureate Research Intern, here at the Jackson Lab.

In the Burgess lab, we study axonal neuropathies and use mouse models to better understand disease etiology and develop novel treatment technology.
