Associate Professor Blaine Roberts

Blaine Roberts' research group focuses on using proteomics to understand the role of metalloproteins in neurodegenerative diseases including Alzheimer's disease, Parkinson's disease and amyotrophic lateral sclerosis.

He has developed new analytical tools and technologies to understand the biological function of essential metals in metalloenzymes in normal biology and disease, and is using these tools to uncover new and exciting insights into the role of metalloenzymes in neurodegeneration.

Blaine is using these insights gained from mass spectrometry and neuroproteomics to develop and validate blood-based tests for a range of neurodegenerative diseases, most notably Alzheimer's disease, Parkinson's disease and motor neuron disease. 

When Blaine is not standing in front of a mass spectrometer, he might be out for a spin on his bike or playing with the family dog Pip.
