Neurodegenerative Disorders Research Group

The Neurodegenerative Disorders Research Group is committed to advancing our understanding of the biological underpinnings of neurodegenerative disease in order to treat these debilitating disorders.

The members of the group have strengths and expertise in both the basic cellular mechanisms that underpin the neurodegenerative process and the clinical and basic study of Parkinson disease (PD) and related movement disorders, and some rarer neurological diseases such as amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS), hereditary spastic paraplegias (HSPs), polyneuropathies and ataxias. Members of the group are world renowned in human genetics and use next-generation sequencing and gene array technologies to identify new disease genes from large numbers of patient samples.
