The prognosis for most neurodegenerative diseases is poor. The causes of the major diseases (eg: Alzheimer's, Parkinson's and Multiple Sclerosis) are complex, including genetic and environmental factors. All conspire to interfere with signalling pathways in neurons and glia which sustain growth and viability. My work focuses on factors that are involved in the promotion of correct neuronal function, and to do this we use a wide range of approaches that encompass biology, chemistry and physics.
