She teaches neuroscience, pharmacology and therapeutics, and has a particular research interest in the characterization and development of novel therapeutic approaches in several neurological diseases. She is Programme Director of the MSc in Neuroscience and Translational Medicine, whose main aim is to help train the next generation of scientists and physicians involved in rapid and successful clinical translation of fundamental discoveries in neuroscience.
A large component of her present research programme is focused on neuroprotective agents in acute spinal cord injury and spinal cord neurodegeneration. Several of her present projects explore the remarkable therapeutic potential of natural compounds, such as the n-3 polyunsaturated fatty acids. Her group has also started a programme of studies on new therapeutic directions in Alzheimer’s disease.
