Andrew heads a laboratory focussing on a group of neurodegenerative disorders known as prion diseases. These diseases include Creutzfeldt-Jakob disease (CJD) in humans and Bovine Spongiform Encephalopathy (BSE or ‘mad-cow’ disease) in cattle. Andrew believes there is still a great deal to learn about these diseases thus providing amazing opportunities for scientific discovery.
