Research focus

Studying Parkinson’s disease (PD) pathogenesis using human stem-cell derived neurons (embryonic stem cells, neuronal stem cells and induced pluripotent stem cells (iPSCs)) with the aim of determining disease mechanisms and discovering novel therapeutic targets.


Current project:

Applying large-scale mass spectrometry to investigate proteomic and post-translational changes in human iPSC-derived neurons from patients with familial PD or with isogenic mutations introduced by genome editing.
