Our group have pioneered techniques to insert intramuscular electrodes into muscles at the hip and shoulder to understand the role of these muscles in the human body.
Our group studies the various aspects of skeletal muscle biochemistry in health and disease, using exercise and disease models in humans, as well as animal models.
Our group uses a combination of biochemistry, molecular and cell biology to investigate neurodegenerative diseases such as Alzheimer's, Prion and Parkinson's diseases.
I use erythrocyte morphology and haemorheology parameters to mark peripheral oxidative stress in Parkinson's Disease.
Our group examines the neurobiology and neurochemistry that underlies the physiology of metabolism.
Our group uses proof-of-concept to identify pathological and molecular mechanisms of disease. We also evaluate candidate MS drugs.
Perugini - Rational inhibitor design targeting drug-resistant bacteria, noxious weeds, and common age-related diseases
Our group studies the structure, function, regulation and inhibition of essential oligomeric enzymes such as dihydrodipicolinate synthase (DHDPS), from the lysine biosynthesis pathway of bacteria.
Our group studies the function of mitochondrial proteins involved in the biogenesis and maintenance of mitochondria at the molecular level.
Our group analyses hip stabiliser muscle function in a population with hip osteoarthritis using MRI and intramuscular electromyography techniques.
