Personal Statement

The age related neural diseases pose an increasing financial and emotional cost to society as we attain a longer life expectancy. Their aetiology often stems from an inability of neural tissue to clear misfunctional macromolecules. By observing them at the molecular level, I aim to answer the question, why are these molecules toxic and what can be done to prevent or cure the diseases they cause?
