University college London
Queen Square Brain Bank
I am a neurology trainee, based in London. I am currently undertaking my PhD, investigating the neuropathology of posterior cortical atrophy (PCA), at the Queen Square Brain Bank, University College London. PCA is a variant of Alzheimer’s disease (AD) which presents with visual and spatial problems rather than the memory problems seen in typical Alzheimer’s disease (TAD). The pathological proteins in PCA and TAD are the same: Aβ plaques and tau neurofibrillary tangles (NFTs). The question therefore is how the same underlying pathology causes such dramatically different clinical presentations and whether these two variants of AD start in different “selectively vulnerable” parts of the brain, or indeed have differing patterns of cortical spread and severity. There is an accumulating wealth of evidence towards distinct subtypes of AD based mainly on neuropathological and imaging studies although the potential biological mechanisms driving this heterogeneity remain unanswered. My aim is to carry out a comprehensive neuropathological characterisation of PCA cases including regional Aβ and NFT quantification, investigation of neuroinflammatory markers and proteomic studies.

Department of Neuroscience
Professor Abisambra trained at the University of South Florida, where he obtained his PhD while working on LDL receptor in Huntington Potter's Lab. He consequently focused on investigating the impact of chaperone proteins on tau biology as a postdoc in Chad Dickey's Lab. In 2013, he opened his lab as an Assistant Prof. in the Sanders-Brown Center on Aging at the University of Kentucky, where he focused on the impact of tau on ER stress and translation, in models of AD, Down syndrome, and TBI. He relocated in 2018 to the University of Florida as an Associate Professor, where he continues to focus his research program on tau and translation. Work from his lab, which is supported by federal and non-profit sources, has brought us closer to understanding the mechanisms by which tau impairs protein synthesis leading to maladaptive responses and cellular dysfunction in AD, FTD, and TBI. He is also an Assistant Dean of Diversity and Health Equity in the UF College of Medicine, where he assists graduate students in the Biomedical Sciences Program. But he is best known for single-parenting 4 kids under 7yo, 3 days a week, while his wife works as a nurse in Labor and Delivery at SHANDS hospital.

However, it has destructive effect on the neurons because it produces oxidative radicals which results in lipid peroxidation destroying the membrane of neurons. The glutamate also increases the intracytosolic calcium ions through increasing calcium ions permeability in the neurons; the cumulative effect of these is neurodegeneration. Neurodegeneration has been, in resent research, implicated in diseases such as Alzheimer’s disease, Huntington disease, Multiple sclerosis, and Parkinson’s disease. There is also evidence that spices and vegetables, consumed as food, contain a lot of antioxidants which mops up the oxidative radicals also called Reactive oxygen species (ROS), thereby ameliorating the extent of neurodegeneration caused by oxidative stress; the antioxidants also help in neuro- recovery and neuroprotection. I have been able to demonstrate an alteration in neurobehaviour, like anxiety, exploratory activities, learning and memory, in rats, that were administered with MSG, using neurobehavioural model test apparatus, like Morris Water Maze and Open Field Box; consequently, I have been able to describe, practically, the rationale of the biological basis of memory loss that is due to death of neurons in the hippocampus, the part of the brain responsible for spatial memory and learning. In my histology, I have also shown loss of neurons in animal subjects administered with Monosodium Glutamate and proved that the antioxidants present in plants, like ginger, could have ameliorative effects, hence attenuating the toxic effects, initiated by glutamate, due to generation of Reactive Oxygen Species. These discoveries has aroused my passion for the proposed used of plants derived antioxidants as a treated of neurodegenerative diseases. Parkinson’s disease is the most common neurodegenerative disease after Alzheimer’s disease; in the last 20 years, researches have been intense to see the cause and understand the biology of the etiopathogenesis of the disease. Although, genetics has being an area that has been looked into to understand the basis of the neurobiology; its main cause is still idiopathic. Over the last 3 years, I have researched repositories of publications in Parkinson’s disease, and related neurodegerative diseases alike, to explain the rationale of the linked protein, Alpha synuclein; that has been indicted in the pathology of the disease. I had made presentations in Africa, America and Europe, to explain the cause of death of neurons at the substantia nigra that have resulted in the loss of dopamine production due to the accumulation of alpha synuclein. I have, also, been able to link several genetic bases including Glucocerebrosidase gene. GBA, PARK 4, LRRK2 gene and SNCA, to the etiology of the neurodegenerative disease. I have five of my proposals passed the administrative phases of Michael J. Fox Foundation, MJFF, for Parkinson Research, explaining the biology of Alpha synuclein and its eventually resulting deaths of dopaminergic neuronal cells in the substantia nigra, pars compacta, a part of the Mid Brain and proposed therapeutic strategies in preventing and treating the disease. I have investigated the deteriorative effects of malnutrition on the nervous system, as a whole and see the corrective measures, using several nutrients, to reverse the effects of neurological symptoms posed by malnutrition on the neural system. Environmental toxicity of the nervous system also arouses my interest; as humans are exposed to toxic substances like lead, zinc, pesticides, and fertilizers, domestic and industrial wastes almost on daily basis. The effects of these toxins are debilitating on the brain, thereby affecting whole body system. The use of antipsychotics are also in wide range recently and little results have been achieved in bringing patients to premorbid states, I, therefore, have interest in seeing how genetic approaches could be used to detect causes of neuropsychiatric diseases and produce a better therapy for patients suffering from several psychiatric disease. I have research works on the toxic effects of tramadol, which is an opiod on the histoarchitecture of some viscerals in the body like the brain, heart, liver, kidney, stomach, lung and the testes and also the hematological parameters; this research was elucidated because of the growing and trending use of the drug among the populace, mainly youths. The outcome of the work showed clear and unequivocal damaging and devastating effects on these vital organs and consequently could result in overall systemic failure, loss of productivity and eventual shutdown, leading to death. The result of the research is aimed to advising drug abusers and government to enact strict policies on the distribution and consumption of opiates.   INVITATIONS AND CONFERENCE ATTENDANCE 1. 3rd International Neuroscience Conference/Advanced School/ Forum of the Institute of Neuroscience and Biomedical Research (INBR), Abuja, Nigeria.

I am an Assistant Professor (Lecturer) in the Epidemiology of Ageing at the Ageing Epidemiology Research Unit, Imperial college London. My research is focused on studying novel biological pathways leading to dementia by multi-modal analysis of genetic, fluid biomarker and neuroimaging data collected in large epidemiological studies. The aim is to reveal unidentified dementia subtypes and identification of early detection or therapeutic targets. My other line of research which I started as postdoctoral researcher at the UCL Department of Epidemiology and Public Health involves public health Markov modelling to forecast the future burden of dementia and disability at population level and estimating the impact of public health interventions on prevalence of these conditions. I hold an MD degree in Medicine from Tehran University and obtained MPhil and PhD degrees in Epidemiology from the University of Cambridge on a Gates Cambridge Scholarship and an honorary Krishnan-Ang Scholarship from Trinity College.
