Her research revolves around the translation of discoveries in human genetics to clinical application in cerebrovascular disorders. Through treating patients in the critical care and stroke units at MGH, she has gained an understanding of the unmet needs in these devastating disorders. Dr. Musolino’s laboratory focuses on leveraging brain imaging, animal models and gene-editing tools to understand how single genes mutations alter brain vessels in order to find better therapies and improve the quality of life of patients suffering monogenic vascular disorders.
