About

The Institute of Genetic Medicine brings together a strong team with an interest in clinical and developmental genetics. The Genetics, PhD; MD at the Newcastle University focuses on the causes of genetic disease at the molecular and cellular level and its treatment. Research areas include: genetic medicine, developmental genetics, neuromuscular and neurological genetics, mitochondrial.

Overview

With the Genetics, PhD; MD at the Newcastle University they use techniques of high-throughput genetic analyses to identify mechanisms where genetic variability between individuals contributes to the risk of developing cardiovascular disease. We also use mouse, zebrafish and stem cell models to understand the ways in which particular gene families' genetic and environmental factors are involved in the normal and abnormal development of the heart and blood vessels.

Key facts:

  • the identification of genes that in isolation can cause neurological disorders
  • molecular mechanisms and treatment of neurometabolic disease
  • complex genetics of common neurological disorders including Parkinson's disease and Alzheimer's disease
  • the genetics of epilepsy

Programme Structure

Courses include:

  • investigation of the role of mitochondria in human disease
  • nuclear-mitochondrial interactions in disease
  • the inheritance of mitochondrial DNA heteroplasmy
  • mitochondrial function in stem cells
  • vesicoureteric reflux (VUR)
  • cystic renal disease
  • nephrolithiasis to study renal genetics
