Lachlan Thompson, PhD

Associate Professor at Florey Institute for Neuroscience and Mental Health

Location: Melbourne VIC Australia

Lachlan Thompson, PhD, is a neurobiologist specializing in neural transplantation. He undertook his training in this area at Lund University, Sweden, where he specialized in transplantation of dopamine neurons in animal models of Parkinson’s disease, including some of the first studies to utilize transgenic cell lines expressing fluorescent proteins in order to study the integration of implanted cells. Now based at the Florey Institute of Neuroscience and Mental Health in Melbourne, his group continues to work in the area of neural transplantation, both as a therapeutic approach for brain and spinal cord repair, but also as a way to understand the properties of neurons generated from human stem cells. Dr. Thompson is a board member of the Network of European CNS Transplantation and Repair and the inaugural co-chair of the Asia-Pacific Association for Neural Transplantation and Repair.
