Investigating the neuroprotective actions of metallo-complexes

Grant number: FT100100674 | Funding period: 2011 - 2014



Metal-based drugs offer an exciting new approach to treatment of neurodegeneration. However, little is known about how cells metabolise these drugs: information that is critical for further drug development. This project will determine how metal-based drugs are metabolized by neuronal cells and how this may result in therapeutic benefit.
