Tissue-Specific Vulnerability to Mitochondrial Disease

Mitochondrial diseases are caused by defects in genes required for energy production and oxidative phosphorylation (OxPhos). We find it intriguing that some patients with mitochondrial disease present late in life, with very tissue-specific phenotypes. Read more

Preclinical Development of Corticotroph Releasing Factor-1 (CRF1) Receptor PET Radioligands to Detect ACTH Producing Pituitary Adenomas

Pituitary adenomas are benign tumours which are challenging to detect and localise with conventional imaging methods. Positron Emission Tomography (PET) with amino acid transport tracers is being utilised to improve lesion detection and characterisation. Read more

Metabolic Control of Microglia Regulating Neuronal Functions

Background. Chronic, low grade, inflammation plays a critical role in inflammatory and degenerative central nervous system (CNS) disorders characterised by an irreversible decline of cognitive functions. Read more

Management of Mild Traumatic Brain Injury

(co-supervised with Professor Peter Hutchinson). Although mild Traumatic Brain Injury (concussion) is the commonest form of brain injury, patient pathways are poorly defined, and patients sometimes lack the support required to deal with post-traumatic symptoms. Read more

Investigating gut-immune interactions in Parkinson’s disease

It is now well established that both gastrointestinal dysfunction and immune activation occur in early Parkinson’s disease, and emerging evidence indicates that these processes are linked to faster disease progression. Read more

Identifying Novel Genes and Developing Treatments for Children with Inherited Neuromuscular Diseases

Inherited neuromuscular disorders are disabling, progressive, often fatal conditions, representing an enormous unmet medical need with devastating impacts on affected families, the healthcare system, and the economy. Read more

Functional MRI Imaging in Traumatic Brain Injury

CENTER-TBI is a large European project that aims to improve the care for patients with Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI). The work undertaken in Cambridge will examine the role of MRI in routine TBI imaging and this project will focus on the role of resting state functional MRI in TBI imaging. Read more

Exploring Disease Mechanism in Cerebral Small Vessel Disease Ultrahigh Resolution using 7T MRI

Cerebral small vessel disease (SVD), is a major cause of both stroke and vascular dementia. It describes a process where the small arteries and arterioles in the brain become abnormal, and this leads to both acute and chronic ischaemic damage in the brain. Read more

Development of PET Radiotracers of AMPA

Our aim is to develop novel Positron Emission Tomography (PET) radiotracers for imaging the brain. PET is a non-invasive molecular imaging technique which enables visualization and quantification of various biological targets in vivo (e.g., receptor, enzyme). Read more

Assessing the Disease Severity in CADASIL using Patients iPSC-derived Models of the Neurovascular Unit

CADASIL is a hereditary cerebral small vessel disease caused by mutations in the NOTCH3 gene. Small vessel diseases affect the small penetrating arteries and brain capillaries and patients often suffer of migraine, ischaemic stroke, and cognitive decline. Read more
