Research Summary:

My D.Phil project involves using proteomic and transcriptomic techniques on post-mortem human brain 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 results in their selective vulnerability to neurodegenerative diseases, especially 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 dramatically reduce the time taken for diagnosis' to be made post-mortem.

Other projects include: 
(1) 
selective vulnerability in ALS.
(2) early detection of Alzheimer’s Disease.
(3) biomarker discovery in Alzheimer’s disease.
(4) 
microproteomics of neuronal cell types.
(5) 
genetic classification of gliomas.
(6)
 neuroimaging of post-mortem tissue. 

I also manage several core facilities within NDCN, including our high-throughput digital slide scanner, laser capture micro-dissecting microscope, and automated IHC-ISH stainer.
