last modified Sep 20, 2018 01:48 PM

Congratulations to Andrea Loreto, who has been awarded a Sir Henry Wellcome Postdoctoral Fellowship. Andrea will start his Sir Henry Wellcome Postdoctoral Fellowship on the 1st of November 2018. In this four-year project he will study the role of the Wallerian axon death pathway in Parkinson’s disease. Collaborations with Richard Wade-Martins (Oxford) and Oliver Bandmann (Sheffield) will establish new capabilities using iPS-derived neurons and zebrafish methodologies.


The Coleman Laboratory does world-leading research into mechanisms of axon and synapse loss, looking for ways to alleviate axonal diseases. Our priorities are high quality science, valuing and training people, and disseminating knowledge to scientists and the public.
