A/Professor Lachlan Thompson

Neurobiologist - Florey Institute of Neuroscience and Mental Health
Professional Bio
Associate Professor Lachlan Thompson is a neurobiologist specialising in neural transplantation. He undertook his training in this area at Lund University, Sweden, where he specialised in transplantation of dopamine neurons in animal models of Parkinson’s disease, including some of the first studies to utilise transgenic cell lines expressing fluorescent proteins in order to study the integration of implanted cells. Now based at the Florey Institute of Neuroscience and Mental Health in Melbourne, his group continues to work in the area of neural transplantation, both as a therapeutic approach for brain and spinal cord repair, but also as a way to understand the properties of neurons generated from human stem cells. A/Prof Thompson is a board member of the Network of European CNS Transplantation and Repair and the inaugural co-chair of the Asia-Pacific Association for Neural Transplantation and Repair.
