Dr Luan is the postdoctoral fellow of Neurodegenerative Pathobiology laboratory in Queensland Brain Institute. Dr Luan's research aims to understand the molecular and cellular mechanism for human neurodegenerative diseases, Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS) and Frontotemporal Degeneration (FTD). His research focuses on the cellular stress responses and novel biochemical pathways in the pathogenesis of these diseases. Dr Luan will use biochemical, immunohistochemistry and AAVs techniques in a well-established pre-clinical transgenic mouse model. His goal is to discover new potential therapeutic targets in order to help patients who suffer these diseases.
