Pathways to Alzheimer's disease (PATHAD)

Start date: Dec 1, 2016, End date: Nov 30, 2021,

Critical to our understanding of Alzheimer’s disease (AD) and also to finding therapies is determining how key pathological factors interact and relate to neuronal toxicity, symptoms and disease progression. My research has focussed on amyloid beta (Aβ) moities and demonstrated that cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) Aβ42 correlates with cerebral Aβ pathology; that Aβ accumulates in the brain 10-20 years p ...

Maintaining the Human Mitochondrial Genome (DELMIT)

Start date: Nov 1, 2016, End date: Oct 31, 2021,

Mitochondria are required to convert food into usable energy forms and every cell contains thousands of them. Unlike most other cellular compartments, mitochondria have their own genomes (mtDNA) that encode for 13 of the about 90 proteins present in the respiratory chain. All proteins necessary for mtDNA replication, as well as transcription and translation of mtDNA-encoded genes, are encoded in t ...

The evolution of barriers to gene exchange (BARRIERS)

Start date: Sep 1, 2016, End date: Aug 31, 2021,

Speciation is a central process in evolution that involves the origin of barriers to gene flow between populations. Species are typically isolated by several barriers and assembly of multiple barriers separating the same populations seems to be critical to the evolution of strong reproductive isolation. Barriers resulting from direct selection can become coincident through a process of coupling wh ...

Regulation of mitochondrial expression (REMIX)

Start date: Oct 1, 2016, End date: Sep 30, 2020,

Mitochondria are essential organelles found in every eukaryotic cell, required to convert food into usable energy. The mitochondrial oxidative phosphorylation (OXPHOS) system, which produces the majority of cellular energy in the form of ATP, is controlled by two distinct genomes: the nuclear and the mitochondrial genome (mtDNA). Mutations in mitochondrial genes encoded by either genome could caus ...

Exploiting Protein Complexes that Induce Cell-death (EPIC)

Start date: Jan 1, 2016, End date: Dec 31, 2019,

The formation of specific protein complexes are key events in life-and-death decisions made by cells. Inappropriate decisions underpin a plethora of disease conditions from degenerative diseases to cancer while the role of the complexes in these processes make them important therapeutic targets. Our ability to develop small molecules to target death-inducing protein complexes has been hampered by ...
