Alison Green has been involved in the analysis of cerebrospinal fluid proteins (CSF) for many years, having undertaken a PhD into the use of cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) proteins in the diagnosis of dementia at The Institute of Neurology, University of London in 1999. In 2000 she moved to the National Creutzfeldt-Jakob disease (CJD) Research & Surveillance Unit, University of Edinburgh to establish a diagnostic laboratory for the analysis and interpretation of CSF 14-3-3 in the diagnosis of prion diseases. Her laboratory was recognized in 2001 by the World Health Organization as an international centre of excellence for CSF 14-3-3 analysis. Her current research interests are in protein aggregation and related disorders. In particular she is interested in the development of diagnostic tests for diseases such as Alzheimer’s disease, Parkinson’s disease and Lewy body dementia based on protein aggregation assays.
