Dr Mark Corbett

Faculty of Health and Medical Sciences

My primary research aim is to map the genetic landscape of neurological disorders, with a view to understanding the basic biology of cognition and to provide an in-road for therapies for these devastating disorders.

This project showed me the value and power of an accurate model to facilitate understanding of the aetiology of human genetic disease from physiology down to the molecular level.
