Research Summary
My research focusses on peripheral nerve disease. Our group has a longstanding interest in inherited neuropathies which is the main area of interest. We particularly work on Charcot-Marie-Tooth disease (CMT), the hereditary sensory and autonomic neuropathies (HSAN) and the distal hereditary motor neuropathies (HMN). Up until recently we have concentrated on identifying causative genes / mutations for these neuropathies and in performing large scale genotype / phenotype studies. More recently we have become interested in the functional consequences of mutated neuropathy genes and currently have a number of projects exporing specific genes for CMT1, CMT2, HSAN1 and HMN. We also in recent years have being involved in developing clinical scales for drug trials in inherited neuropathies and are currently conducting a drug trial in CMT1A. Our other area of interest is the inflammatory neuropathies particularly chronic inflammatory demyelinating polyradiculoneuropathy (CIDP) and multifocal motor neuropathy with conduction block (MMN), particularly the treatment of these conditions. Our research includes imaging nerves with MRI and conducting drug trials in the inflammatory neuropathies.
