My current research encompasses treatment strategies and biomarker discovery for Motor Neuron Disease (also known as Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis).

After completing a PhD at Adelaide University in December 2003, I undertook postdoctoral studies in the Neurotrophic Laboratory at Flinders University. I now lead the research undertaken in the Neurotrophic Laboratory.
