Oxidation Biology Unit
This group has a particular interest in uncovering the pathways that lead to a variety of neurodegenerative diseases, especially those pathways in which metal ions (such as zinc, copper and iron) interact with key target proteins.
Studies of these pathways have led to new insights for drug therapies for Alzheimer’s disease and Huntington disease.
