Minee Choi

GROUP MEMBER - SECONDMENT

Minee was awarded a Cambridge Overseas Trust Scholarship and received PhD in Clinical Neurosciences from the University of Cambridge (PhD supervisor: Prof. Roger Barker) in 2013. She is a senior post-doctoral research fellow at Sonia Gandhi’s lab, UCL Queen Square Institute of Neurology and The Francis Crick Institute, London (laboratory secondment). Her research interest is to understand a mechanism of protein aggregation, mitochondrial dysfunction and neuroinflammation in neurodegeneration with synucleinopathy. Minee’s research aims to dissect the cellular mechanism of neurodegeneration, which is believed to be the key to curing  Parkinson’s disease and Lewy body dementia. She has extensively utilized the most advanced biophysical methods such as FRET (Foster resonance energy transfer), human induced pluripotent stem cells (hiPSCs) system and machine learning. She also established a useful disease model of neuroinflammation and mitochondrial dysfunction.
