Research Summary


Research in my group focuses on development and disease of the central nervous system. We have aparticular interest in identifying the causes and mechanisms underlying neural tube defects (e.g. spina bifida) and in identifying novel preventive therapies. In parallel we are working towards development of novel treatment for the rare, neurometabolic disorder Non-Ketotic Hyperglycinemia (NKH).
A common theme across several projects is the involvement of folate one-carbon metabolism and a number of collaborative projects focus on different aspects of FOCM as related to health and disease.
