Project Title: Immunoproteasomes as therapeutic targets in neuroinflammation and neurodegenerative diseases
Supervisor: Dr Yu Ye
Location: Sir Michael Uren Building, White City Campus
I developed a strong interest in understanding the pathophysiological and immunological aspects of diseases while pursuing my Bachelor of Science in Biochemistry. Following graduation, I became a research technician in several groups investigating aberrant signalling in tumorigenesis. Currently, I am applying my expertise to delve into the devastating effects of neuroinflammatory signalling in neurodegenerative diseases as part of my PhD studies.
BSc (Hons.) Biochemistry, Stony Brook University, 2015
Investigating the role of the immunoproteasome in neuroinflammation and neurodegeneration, with the goal to develop new treatments for patients with dementia.
