Dr Sargeant is the head of Lysosomal Health in Ageing (South Australian Health and Medical Research Institute). His group focuses on how a recycling process called autophagy is linked to ageing and dementia, and how to measure this process in humans.
The Ooi lab researches mechanisms in neurodegeneration, neuroinflammation and the control of neuronal function.
Dr Cox is working to uncover the molecular drivers of neurodegenerative disease, with a current focus on novel applications of super-resolution microscopy for interrogating motor neuron disease-associated protein aggregates in patient-derived biofluids.
Research in the Gleeson lab is focused on the cell biology of stem cell-derived human neurons and the membrane trafficking defects associated with elevated amyloid beta production and Alzheimer’s disease.
Dr Padmanabhan's team combines mathematical modelling and quantitative imaging techniques to discover pathomechanisms underlying several infectious and neurodegenerative diseases and to optimise treatments.
Research in the Shen Lab is focused on fundamental protein aggregation, liquid-liquid phase separation and their applications in functional biomaterials by exploiting soft matter approaches and microfluidic techniques.
The Bond lab studies nucleic acid binding proteins and their interactions in vitro, with a focus on linking atomic resolution detail to cell-scale function.
Research in the Laird lab focuses on developing treatments for neurodegenerative diseases including Machado-Joseph disease and motor neuron disease using a range of in vivo and in vitro models.
The Dewson lab focuses on understanding how defects in ubiquitin signalling and mitochondria drive neuronal cell death in Parkinson’s.
Research in the Kaur lab focuses on the design and development of fluorescent tools for imaging the morphology and environment of protein aggregates at the nanoscale.
Research in Arne Ittner’s lab aims to understand the molecular basis of memory loss in dementia with a focus on protein kinase-mediated mechanisms.
