Organization profile

Profile Information

The focus of research in this centre is to explore the underlying aetiology of many diseases including central nervous system related conditions with the aim of identifying biomarkers that help improve the understanding, diagnosis and treatment of such disease. Specific areas of interest include:

  • Identification of molecules (metabolites, genetic variants, proteins or RNA) that are associated with disease states and the evaluation of these as biomarkers of diseases including neurological and neurodegenerative disorders
  • Identification of novel targets for therapeutic intervention
  • Use of biomarkers to predict or monitor pharmacological response to drug treatment.
