My Work

Our work focuses on translational, collaborative research for the development of diagnostic, prognostic and novel protective agents in clinical intervention for neuroprotection in ischaemic stroke. Our research is focused on gene regulation and elucidation of signalling networks involved in mediating neuronal injury and cell death. We utilise molecular and translational approaches to identify and advance our understanding of clinically relevant biomarkers of neuronal damage and develop new effective therapeutic targets in the treatment of acute brain injury following ischaemic stroke.
