Talk title: "Investigating the role of hypermetabolism in ALS"

Shyuan Ngo heads the Neurometabolism Laboratory at the University of Queensland, and is a FightMND Mid-Career Research Fellow. Her team’s research focuses on deciphering the impact of altered metabolic homeostasis on ALS pathophysiology and pathobiology. Her research has a strong translational focus, integrating studies in patients with ALS with studies in human-derived cell models and mouse models of ALS. A/Prof oversees research aimed at improving our understanding of the cause and consequence of hypermetabolism in ALS, as well as preclinical and clinical studies (NCT04788745) aimed at targeting hypermetabolism in ALS.
