Personal profile

Research interests

Tau, a microtubule-associated protein implicated in the development of pathology in Alzheimers disease, progressive supranuclear palsy and related tauopathies. This laboratory is particularly interested in the phosphorylation status of tau in disease and in the protein kinases involved in pathological and physiological phosphorylation of tau. Alpha-synuclein, a pre-synaptic protein present in Lewy bodies in the brain of people with Parkinsons disease, dementia with Lewy bodies, multiple system atrophy and related disorders. We are investigating biochemical modifications and functional abnormalities in disease-relevant proteins and the implications for diseases in which they play a pathological role. A wide range of techniques is used in our research, including protein chemistry, and cell and molecular biology. Table of tau phosphorylation sites compiled by Diane Hanger: https://bit.ly/2JyZTbS
