Research

I am investigating the differential expression of various RNA species (miRNA, circRNA and total RNA) within a longitudinal cohort of Parkinson's disease (PD) patients compared to controls. RNA is extracted and sequenced from human biological fluids with the aim of characterising a novel transcriptomic biomarker for PD.
