My D.Phil project involves using proteomic and transcriptomics on post-mortem human brain samples to define specific cell types across the adult and developing brain and to investigate how the biochemical composition of single cells change across neurodegenerative diseases, mainly in regards to Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis.
My responsibilities as a Research Assistant is funded by NIHR BRC, for this project, I review current methods for diagnosing neurodegenerative diseases and adopt unbiased -omics technologies to better classify disease progression and to dramatically reduce the time taken for diagnosis' to be made post-mortem. Other projects include using genetic and histological techniques to better understand mouse disease models, MRI Scanning, and understanding how metabolic changes emerge from IDH mutations in gliomas.
