Dr. Berglund’s scientific career has revolved around understanding the role of RNA in biology. The focus of his research is in neuromuscular diseases with the goal of translating basic science into therapeutic strategies using a combination of biochemical, cellular, genomic and computational approaches. For the last 16 years at the Universities of Oregon and Florida his research group has focused on RNA splicing with an emphasis on understanding the mechanisms of a common form of muscular dystrophy, myotonic dystrophy, as well as other microsatellite diseases such as amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS), and spinocerebellar ataxias (SCAs).
