We are pleased to present Assistant Professor Damien Hall to speak on Physical biochemistry of amyloidosis disease

Date: 5th December 2022

TIme: 11:00am

My research program involves the application of physical chemistry / biophysics type theoretical and experimental approaches to the study of various amyloidosis disorders such as Alzheimer’s disease, Type 2 diabetes and the cardiac amyloidosis (e.g. AL, ATTR). In this talk, after a brief introductory survey of the amyloidosis diseases, I will discuss some recent work covering amyloidosis disease modelling, amyloid fibril metrology, chaperone action, anti-amyloid drug development assays and cellular models of amyloid transmission.



In January of 2021 Damien Hall was appointed as a Specially Appointed Assistant Professor at the World Premier International Nano Life Science Institute located at Kanazawa University, Japan. Prior to this he held a series of personal five-year research fellowships at the National Institutes of Health, Osaka University, The Australian National University, University of Tsukuba and the University of Cambridge. In addition to his direct research activities, Damien has been the Chief Editor of the International Union for Pure and Applied Biophysics (IUPAB) journal, ‘Biophysical Reviews’ since 2019.
