Project: Investigating RNA processing and the RNA-binding proteome in ALS


Life in the Lab

I am a qualified Vet and PhD student, co-supervised by Prof Rickie Patani and Prof Nick Luscombe. I am using a stem cell model of human ALS to uncover and dissect the underlying mechanisms which cause death of motor neurons. Specifically, I am looking at how aberrant RNA processing arises and manifests, at the level of the transcripts themselves (splicing) and at the protein level (RNA binding proteins).

Life outside the Lab

Existential exploration (translation: staring into space); plus some reading, writing, and squash-playing.
