Anna Parsons

Postgraduate Student

In 2017 I graduated from Leicester University with a BSc(Hons) in Biological Sciences with Neuroscience. I was subsequently awarded funding from the MRC and am now undertaking a four year DPhil position at the Harwell Mammalian Genetics Unit.

I am working with Peter Oliver investigating the mechanisms of the oxidative stress response in neurodegeneration, particularly involving the TLDc gene family. My research focus is on the potential neuroprotective effect of overexpressing these genes, and the pathological consequences of their dysfunction. I am using a combination of in vitro cell-based assay, molecular analysis and in vivo models of human disease to investigate this.
