Dr John Viles
I have an active research program studying protein misfolding associated with amyloid formation in neurodegenerative diseases such as Alzheimer's. My team uses a range of biophysical techniques to study the fundamental process that influence neurotoxic oligomer and amyloid plaque formation. Approaches include, bimolecular spectroscopies, including NMR, CD, IR and EPR to study protein structure, misfolding and stability.

Prof Dean Nizetic
One of my long term research themes is the study of chromosome and gene dose effects (aneuploidy and haploinsufficiency) on cellular functions, specifically the phenotypic features of Down syndrome (DS), caused by just one extra copy of perfectly normal, chromosome 21. Other research areas include childhood Leukemia, Alzheimer's disease, Neurodegeneration and studies of mouse embryonic stem cells.
