I am a basic scientist interested in the neuromuscular system. We have shown severe defects in the blood vessels which supply motor neurons and also surprising organ pathologies in a childhood form of motor neurone disease (Spinal Muscular Atrophy). We are investigating the cellular mechanics of these defects using a variety of model systems to gain insight into what drives this devastating disease.
