Research Interests

Recently we have been interested in developing new MRI contrast agents as research tools for neural stem cell implants. The use of embryonic stem cells for cellular therapies in neurodegenerative diseases — such as Parkinson’s or Huntington’s diseases, dementia, trauma or stroke — is an area of research which shows great promise for alleviating and potentially repairing a range of debilitating and ultimately fatal conditions. However, a major constraint on research in neural transplantation is the present inability to visualise, monitor and track the fate of the transplanted cells directly in vivo.
