• Cellular signalling pathways are molecular connections that control development and function in nerve cells. 

  • Changes in signalling pathways alter the molecular wiring in nerve cells and cause a wide range of neurological diseases, ranging from neurodevelopmental disorders to neurodegenerative diseases.

  • Many neurological disorders are poorly understood and lack effective treatments.

  • We aim to uncover the molecular mechanisms contributing to these diseases by studying how changes in signalling pathways, such as mTOR and mitochondrial signalling alter nerve cell development and function.

  • Our research will contribute to improved understanding and the development of novel treatments for currently intractable neurological disorders.
