About The Lab

We discover and characterise novel gene therapy approaches for intractable neurological diseases, with rapid potential for translation.

 

We start by investigating the pathophysiological mechanisms of disease and then use novel insights to develop and improve therapeutic tools to cure them.

We utilise a wide variety of methods to develop and test our interventions, ranging from molecular and genetic methods through to in vivo electrophysiology and behaviour.
