My research focuses on the pathology of neurodegenerative disease, including dementia and motor neuron disease. Currently I am using human tissue sample to examine the relationship between head injury and subsequent neurodegeneration as a method to investigate mechanisms that may initiate neuronal damage. I am also the Coordinator of the London Neurodegenerative Diseases Brain Bank; one of the largest brain banks in the UK, specialising in central nervous system tissue collection from neurodegenerative, neurological and psychiatric disease. I manage all aspects of tissue donation, consent, collection, storage and distribution of samples to researchers.
