Dr. Tamara Maiuri is a postdoctoral fellow in Dr. Ray Truant's group at McMaster University, Canada. Prior to joining the Huntington's disease field, Tamara obtained her PhD from the Medical Biophysics Department at the University of Toronto where she studied the cell biology of cancer-related genes. Her work in the Truant lab focuses on the normal biological functions of the huntingtin protein in hopes of understanding how they may be disrupted upon inheritance of the mutant huntingtin gene that causes HD.
