Richard Gordon, PhD
Senior Research Fellow at The University of Queensland
Location: Brisbane, Queensland, Australia
Dr. Richard Gordon's primary research interest is in characterizing the innate immune mechanisms that contribute to progressive neurodegeneration in Parkinson's and related neurodegenerative disorders. He has extensive research expertise in studying neuroinflammatory responses in pre-clinical models of neurodegeneration. His doctoral and postdoctoral research has uncovered novel microglial signaling pathways that drive neuroinflammation and dopaminergic degeneration in experimental models of Parkinson's disease. Dr. Gordon's current research focuses on characterizing the immune and inflammatory responses to pathological misfolded protein aggregates that accumulate during progressive neurodegeneration.
