Lacey is investigating the mechanisms that underlie the organization of molecular domains in myelinated axons using gene specific mutant and transgenic animals. Her research will also involve characterization of mouse models of human Cntnap1 gene mutations and designing of rescue strategies for eventual translational studies.
