Julian M. Carosi: South Australian Health and Medical Research Institute, Australia
During his PhD, Dr Carosi studied how autophagy – a powerful cellular ‘waste disposal’ system – removes and destroys toxic proteins that accumulate in the brains of people with neurodegenerative diseases such as Alzheimer’s disease. Now as a postdoctoral researcher, Dr Carosi’s interests remain centred around autophagy, but with a deeper focus on understanding autophagy in molecular detail, investigating how stimuli activate or inhibit autophagy, and identifying ways to monitor this process in animals and humans.
