My D.Phil project involves using proteomic and transcriptomic techniques on post-mortem human brain samples to define specific cell types across the adult and developing brain. These techniques are also used to investigate how the biochemical composition of single cells differ across neurodegenerative diseases, especially regarding the selective vulnerability of 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 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.
