Peroxisomes on the Rise – Professor Michael Schrader, University of Exeter

Sep 7, 2018 | biology, health and medicine

Professor Michael Schrader and his team at the University of Exeter are working to decipher how specialised compartments within cells called peroxisomes are formed and function to perform vital roles in processing the lipids that coat nerve cells and in defending the cell against oxidative stress. The team is deciphering the fundamental molecular mechanisms that link peroxisomes to neurological disease and the process of ageing.
