Project Details

Babies experiencing asphyxia during birth are at risk of significant long-term disabilities such as cerebral palsy and epilepsy. Birth asphyxia temporarily deprives the brain of glucose and oxygen, resulting in hypoxic-ischaemic (HI) injury characterized by neuronal energy failure and increased neuronal death. Although many signalling pathways are triggered, mitochondria act as the hub for these injury responses and defining mitochondrial biodynamics during such cellular stress is key to developing effective, mitochondria-targeted therapeutics.
