Laura P.W. Ranum, Ph.D., has been named a fellow by the American Association for the Advancement of Science, which recognizes those who make distinguished scientific advances.

Ranum is director of the UF Center for NeuroGenetics and the Kitzman Family professor in the UF College of Medicine’s department of molecular genetics and microbiology. She was recognized for distinguished contributions to molecular and translational neuroscience.


Ranum studies genetic mutations that cause neurologic diseases such as ataxia, myotonic dystrophy and amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, or ALS.  Many of these diseases are caused when three or more letters of the genetic code are repeated too many times. Ranum’s lab showed that these expanded stretches of repeat DNA can cause cells to make unexpected and unwanted proteins, which can accumulate in patients’ brains. Her work has changed scientists’ basic understanding of how microsatellite expansion mutations contribute to neurodegenerative diseases.
