Molecular chaperone proteins are the body’s front-line defenders against the clumping of proteins into the large deposits that are associated with many human diseases, including Alzheimer’s disease, Parkinson’s disease and Motor Neurone Disease (MND). By identifying innovative approaches to activate these molecular chaperones, my work aims to develop new drugs to treat, and ultimately prevent these diseases.
