Nicolas Dzamko, PhD
Senior Research Fellow at The University of Sydney
Location: Sydney, NSW, Australia
Dr. Nicolas Dzamko is a research fellow at the University of Sydney who focuses on understanding the fundamental causes of Parkinson's disease (PD), as well as the identification of PD biomarkers (track disease activity) and potential disease-modifying therapies or cures.
Dr. Dzamko earned his PhD from the University of Melbourne and trained as a post-doctoral fellowship with Professor Dario Alessi at the MRC Protein Phosphorylation Unit in Scotland and with Professor Glenda Halliday at the University of NSW.
Dr. Dzamko is currently working on proteins implicated in Parkinson's (LRRK2, GBA, alpha-synuclein) and has a strong interest in the role of these proteins in inflammation, autophagy (regulated cell death), mitochondrial (powerhouse of the cell) function and protein trafficking (movement of proteins through the cell), as well as in the biological processes in Parkinson's in general.
