Timothy Hines, Ph.D.

Postdoctoral Associate

Understanding mechanisms underlying neuromuscular diseases, such as Charcot-Marie-Tooth disease using mouse and human cell based models.

After obtaining my B.S. and B.A. in Psychology at Appalachian State University, I did my Ph.D. at the University of South Carolina in Dr. Deanna Smith's lab. In her lab, I studied mechanisms regulating dynein-dependent axonal transport with a particular interest in how impairment of these pathways can lead to neurodegeneration.
