Event details

Dr Richard Wade-Martins will present work underway using new induced pluripotent stem cell-derived dopaminergic neurons and transgenic and knock-out animal models to study key cellular and molecular changes in neurodegeneration.

Dr Wade-Martins heads the Laboratory of Molecular Neurodegeneration at the University of Oxford, and leads the Oxford Parkinson’s Disease Centre, a multidisciplinary, translational program of work spanning clinical and basic science. His research uses a range of techniques to better understand the cellular and molecular mechanisms of neurodegenerative diseases, such as Parkinson’s disease, with a view to eventually developing novel molecular therapies. In the seminar Richard will present work underway using new induced pluripotent stem cell-derived dopaminergic neurons and transgenic and knock-out animal models to study key cellular and molecular changes in neurodegeneration.
