The laboratories of Professor Roger Barker and Dr James Rowe work together to determine and better understand the mechanisms underlying neurodegenerative disease and how they impact on critical neural networks, and cognitive systems and clinical features. We will use this knowledge to develop innovative treatments, translating basic science to novel therapies, and evaluating their impact on symptoms or the course of disease. We work in close partnership with patients and carers, combining specialist services for NHS patients with internationally recognized research programs into the causes, mechanisms and treatments of disease.

Examples of our work include:
