Our group is investigating the molecular origins of neurodegenerative disorders, such as Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s Disease, that are characterised neuropathologically by the presence of amyloid fibrils. The aim of our research is to understand the fundamental molecular origins of protein aggregation into amyloid and the relationship between this process and the pathogenesis of neurodegenerative diseases. We have used a combination of in vitro biophysics and computational modelling to describe very accurately the intrinsic physicochemical properties of proteins that determine their propensity to form amyloid fibrils in test tubes. More recently we have begun to study the determinants of amyloid aggregation in a Drosophila model of Alzheimer’s Disease (in collaboration with Prof. D. Lomas and Dr. D. Crowther here in Cambridge) and are using this model to understand in more detail the relationship between protein misfolding and pathogenesis.
