Neuronopathic Gaucher disease: does LIMP-2 play a role? (2009)

Dr Nicholas Smith is an Australian physician specialising in paediatric neurology. Dr Smith has recently joined the University of Cambridge Lysosomal Storage Disease Research Group led by Prof.Timothy Cox where he plans to study the neuropathology of a variety of lysosomal storage disorders including Gaucher Disease. Dr Smith hopes that a greater understanding of the neurological pathogenesis in these conditions will contribute to the development of improved therapeutic interventions for patients with neurological disease. As part of his work at Addenbrooke’s Dr Smith plans to undertake a collaborative study into the role LIMP – 2: more
