Title: Physical biochemistry of amyloidosis disease
Abstact: My research program involves the application of physical chemistry / biophysics type theoretical and experimental approaches to the study of various amyloidosis disorders such as Alzheimer’s disease, Type 2 diabetes and the cardiac amyloidosis (e.g. AL, ATTR). In this talk, after a brief introductory survey of the amyloidosis diseases, I will discuss some recent work covering amyloidosis disease modelling, amyloid fibril metrology, chaperone action, anti-amyloid drug development assays and particle based cellular models of amyloid transmission.
