Organisation profile

Molecular, imaging and sophisticated viral delivery techniques are used to investigate the genes that regulate neuronal function. This work includes: 
  1. identifying the changes in gene expression that occur in neuronal cells exposed to stress or disease causing agent; 
  2. developing viral vector systems optimized to study neuronal function; 
  3. developing stem cell and induced pluripotent stem cell models of human disease conditions; 
  4. how miRNAs and RNA binding proteins influence the expression of genes involved in the control of fundamental neuronal processes.
