Metabolic and Redox Regulation of Neurodegenerative Diseases and Aging

The Cumming laboratory studies the changes in brain metabolism and antioxidant defence that occur with age.  We are trying to understand how age-dependent alterations in metabolic and antioxidant enzyme activities contribute to neurodegenerative disorders, including Alzheimer’s disease and Huntington’s disease.

We currently are using a variety of biochemical, genetic, microscopic and neuroimaging techniques to examine aerobic glycolysis and antioxidant response in both cell culture and mouse models of aging and neurodegenerative diseases.
