I am investigating why particular nerve cells are vulnerable to degeneration.

Dr Tom Wishart’s laboratory is interested in understanding what makes specific neuronal populations vulnerable to various neurodegenerative stimuli. They combine anatomical knowledge, high-resolution imaging and biochemical/molecular biological techniques to elucidate the mechanisms underpinning altered neuronal vulnerability. The laboratory anticipates that these approaches will ultimately lead to the identification of novel therapeutic targets that may prove effective modulators of disease progression across multiple neurodegenerative conditions.
