Research Overview

Lysosomes are a subset of organelles that are crucial for cellular function, as epitomised by the 50 human diseases that are caused by mutations in the genes encoding lysosomal and associated proteins. My laboratory is interested in the function of novel uncharacterised lysosomal transmembrane proteins, their roles in normal cellular function and the events that unfold when these proteins become dysfunctional in lysosomal diseases. We are particularly interested in applying our research on lysosomal proteins to other human diseases, particularly infectious and neurodegenerative diseases. Lysosomal research is an emerging area owing to the development of new tools capable of measuring lysosomal function at the acidic pH found within these compartments. My lab utilises these tools to investigate the function of this enigmatic class of organelles. For more information, please click on the 'Research' tab.
