Professor Andrew Crosby

Professor of Human Genetics

RILD Building 

Professor Crosby’s main area of research involves the investigation of the genetic and molecular causes of inherited conditions, stemming from the identification of the causal disease gene through to more detailed studies of the disease mechanism responsible. He and his colleagues have so far identified the genes that underlie >35 novel inherited conditions, the majority of which cause neurological disease. He is recognised internationally for his research in motor neurone degenerative diseases, in particular the hereditary spastic paraplegias for which his team have discovered 10 new causative genes. These genetic discoveries have provided an important insight into new pathogenic mechanisms which are now undergoing more detailed investigation in his research group, and have led to the exploration of a clinical trial in motor neurone disease.

Many of the families involved in these genetic studies have been identified as part of a long-running community genetic program based amongst the Amish populations of Ohio (USA) undertaken in close collaboration with Dr Emma Baple (UEMS). The UK research team undertake their studies in close partnership with clinicians, special education teachers and other healthcare workers who provide care and support for Amish and other Anabaptist families locally. As well as empowering diagnostic services in the region, their genetic studies provide the scientific insight important for the development and investigation of new therapeutic approaches for conditions which occur in the community.
