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.
