Abby Tadenev, Ph.D.

Associate Research Scientist & Program Manager

Works to better understand the mechanisms underlying human neuromuscular disorders and serves as Program Manager of the JAX Center for Precision Genetics.

I have had a longstanding interest in using animal models to enhance our knowledge of basic human biological processes as well as disease states.  Having recently joined the Burgess lab group as an Associate Research Scientist, I am looking forward to using my training to develop mouse models of human neuromuscular disorders and to use these models to elucidate both the cellular and molecular processes that contribute to disease as well as possible therapeutic strategies.

As Program Manager for the JAX Center for Precision Genetics (JCPG), I work with the lead researchers to help manage and coordinate the Center's various research projects.  In addition, I compile and synthesize the efforts of JCPG scientists and communicate the results to internal and external collaborators, overseers, and the NIH.
