Liam Loftus, PhD
ll244@georgetown.edu

Liam Loftus graduated from the National University of Ireland, Galway, with a Ph.D. in protein biochemistry. Having joined the Matsuoka Lab in February 2005 as a postdoctoral fellow, he is currently researching the delivery of transductive tracer proteins to the cells of the murine CNS. A variety of in vivo delivery approaches have been employed, the most successful being intranasal administration. Additional work is being conducted on developing suitable solvent combinations for delivery of small molecule BACE inhibitors. These studies are part of the laboratory’s wider aim of preventing or treating neurodegenerative diseases.
