In Neurogenetics we aim to characterise the role of genes in human brain diseases with a view to improving biological and mechanistic understanding, thus facilitating the development of better therapies.
Multiple sclerosis (MS) is an area of research focus, with current work focussing on the role of genomic mutation in brain cells on disease development and progression.
A further aspect of our research seeks to leverage human neural induced-pluripotent stem cells to explore the functional basis of gene-to-disease associations.
Brain health affects all Australians. You can support our research by making a donation or a bequest.
