Dr George Allen


George undertook a PhD studentship funded by the AADC Research Trust from 2007 to 2010. Studying at the UCL Institute of Neurology, this work included establishing the plasma AADC enzyme assay as a diagnostic test in the UK. Following this, he performed postdoctoral research at the MRC Protein Phosphorylation Unit working on mitochondrial quality control and Parkinson’s disease.  He then trained as a clinical biochemist at the Royal Devon and Exeter NHS Foundation Trust, where he currently works.
