Cryo-EM studies of amyloids in neurodegenerative disease

https://www2.mrc-lmb.cam.ac.uk/groups/goedert. Assembly of a small number of proteins into abnormal filamentous amyloid inclusions characterizes many human neurodegenerative diseases, including Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s. Read more

Neuroinflammation, glial cell dysfunction & neurodegenerative diseases

Neurodegenerative disorders, such as Alzheimer’s disease, are often associated with chronic neuroinflammation and glial cell dysfunction that acts to exacerbate neuronal damage and loss of synapses. Read more

Targeting protein acetylation to reduce microglia activation in neurodegenerative disorders

Recently, inhibitors of histone deacetylase enzymes (HDACs) have been identified as having potential therapeutic value for a range of neuronal disorders including Alzheimer’s disease, dementia and stroke [1, 2]. Read more

Sequence variation and epigenomic mechanisms underlying human neuropsychiatric and neurodegenerative diseases

This is the decade of the ‘brain’ and this is also the decade of advancements in ‘genomic technologies’. This project aims to use cutting edge sequencing technologies and molecular approaches to understand susceptibility to human disorders of the brain. Read more

Medical Research Council (MRC) Parkinson’s Disease and Neurodegeneration PhD Programme 2020/2021

We are seeking bright and enthusiastic young students to join a new PhD programme at the MRC PPU dedicated to understanding the cellular mechanisms underlying Parkinson's disease and other neurodegenerative diseases. Read more

MSc by Research programme - ADP-ribosylation in dementia and motor neuron disease

ADP-ribosylation is a fundamental posttranslational modification where ADP-ribose is linked on to target proteins by ADP-ribose transferases and removed by the ADP-ribose hydrolases. Read more

Navigating through sequence space to understand Alpha-Synuclein Aggretion

The aggregation of the 140 residue protein a-synuclein into amyloid fibres is associated with neurodegenerative diseases known as synucleinopathies including Parkinson’s disease (the second most common neurodegenerative disease worldwide). Read more
