Professor of Neuroscience, Lancaster University

I am interested in the pathological role of misfolded 'amyloid' proteins in a range of different human diseases, including some important neurodegenerative diseases, such as Alzheimer's disease and Parkinson's disease, and also late-onset diabetes.

My research is concerned with the mechanism of formation and deposition of these protein aggregates, the relationship between protein aggregation and tissue damage, and in novel approaches to diagnosis and therapy.
