Research Summary

I am a clinician undertaking a PhD in molecular mechanisms and therapeutic strategies in amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) caused by mutations in the C9orf72 gene, supervised by Dr Adrian Isaacs, Prof Linda Partridge and Dr Rickie Patani. I integrate two pre-clinical ALS disease models: human induced pluripotent stem cell derived motor neurons and a Drosophila in-vivo model. I am a Leonard Wolfson Clinical Research Training Fellow funded by a Wellcome Trust Research Training Fellowship.
