Dr Heather Mortiboys from the University of Sheffield will be speaking as part of the WCMR seminar series on the 26th September 2019 from 1-2pm in the CISR.

Dr Mortiboys research interests are concerned with investigating mitochondria in neurodegenerative diseases, primarily focused on Parkinson’s Disease. This encompasses mitochondrial function, DNA, morphology and recycling. Her research focuses on both trying to further the understanding of the causes of mitochondrial problems in neurodegenerative conditions and in vitro drug screening for molecules which rescue mitochondrial function in patient tissue.
