Dr Amin’s research interests focus on the role of inflammation in Lewy body dementia, Alzheimer’s disease, and other neurodegenerative conditions. This includes exploration of the role of cerebral inflammatory markers in post-mortem human brain tissue, and peripheral inflammatory markers using techniques such as multiplex immunoassay and flow cytometry.

Clinically, Dr Amin’s interests are in improving the quality of life and outcomes of people living with dementia, and their carers. Dr Amin is principal investigator for several commercial and non-commercial clinical trials at the Memory Assessment and Research Centre in Southampton ( These include drug trials testing novel agents in Alzheimer’s disease, Dementia with Lewy bodies and Mild Cognitive Impairment.
