Sulev Koks

professor - Murdoch UniversityAustralia
Professional Bio
Sulev Koks (MD, PhD) is a professor at the Murdoch University and at Perron institute in Western Australia. His current primary research focus is on the mechanisms of Parkinson’s disease. His lab works on the functional analysis and description of the transposable elements related to the neurodegenerative mechanisms and pathology. Transposable elements are responsible for the “missing heritability” and analysis of this part of the genome helps us to identify new genomic regions responsible for the development of neurodegeneration. This is a translational approach where different cohort studies (cross-sectional, longitudinal) are combined with preclinical cellular models to study the pathogenesis of neurodegenerative diseases.
