Personal profile

Biography

Robert studied Human Genetics at the University of Nottingham before moving to the Medical Research Council's Human Genetics Unit in Edinburgh to complete his PhD and begin his work using the zebrafish model system. He completed his PhD in 2003 and continued his research at the Victor Chang Cardiac Research Institute in Sydney and the Australian Regenerative Medicine Institute at Monash University. He joined the school as a lecturer and researcher in 2010.

 

Research interests

Robert's lab investigates neuromuscular disease, spanning the spectrum from identification of new disease genes, to determination of the underlying biological mechanism, and subsequently evaluation of potential therapies. The focus is on the identification of clinically translatable findings, aiding in the diagnosis and treatments of these conditions. We primarily use the zebrafish model to achieve these goals.

Our research target the universities research focus area of Health Sciences.
