Postdoctoral Research Scientist
I am a postdoctoral research scientist within the Translational Neuroscience and Dementia Research Group, investigating the underlying cellular mechanisms in Alzheimer’s disease. To understand how amyloid protein in the brains of Alzheimer’s patients causes neurodegeneration we use a neuronal cell model derived from human induced pluripotent stem cells. We are especially interested in the role of the protein clusterin, a major genetic risk factor for Alzheimer’s disease, and how this affects amyloid pathology.
Prior to joining the Department of Psychiatry I completed my PhD in Neuroscience at the Institute of Psychiatry, Psychology and Neuroscience at King’s College London in collaboration with AstraZeneca.
