I have studied Tau biology and pathology in a number of cellular and animal models since my DPhil, first in the laboratory of Prof. Hugh Perry in Oxford, and then in the laboratory of Sir Simon Lovestone at the Institute of Psychiatry in London.
In 2001 I began my independent research career as an Alzheimer Society fellow and then as a lecturer at the University of Southampton in 2004. As my team grew, my interest in tauopathies deepened, and my experimental portfolio diversified to include Drosophila models and more recently human tissue-based models (post-mortem, resected, and iPSC cells - in collaboration with other scientists in Southampton).
The methodologies employed to interrogate and manipulate the pathogenic tau species as they evolved in these models became more sophisticated through exciting interdisciplinary collaborations with scientists both within and beyond Southampton, as described on these pages.
