Professor of Developmental Neurobiology
I lead my own lab group within the Centre for Developmental Neurobiology and supervise several PhD and MSc students. My lab’s research primarily focuses on how to initiate neurogenesis in the mammalian brain, as typically most adult mammals are incapable of regenerating neurons after embryonic development. We do this by converting support cells into induced neurons, using in vitro and in vivo virus-based models. We also study neural stem cell models, to further inform our research in integrating newly generated neurons within existing networks. We hope that our research will ultimately pave the way for new strategies for regenerating the diseased brain in humans. Our work is supported by the Wellcome Trust.
