Dr Angus (Gus) Grey gained his PhD from the University of Auckland. He conducted post-doctoral research at the Medical University of South Carolina and Vanderbilt University with Prof Kevin Schey before returning to Auckland as a Research Fellow in the Department of Physiology. Gus is interested in investigating the molecular basis of ocular diseases using spatially resolved mass spectrometric techniques such as MALDI imaging. His current research aims to understand how long-lived lens proteins are modified over time to contribute to normal lens function and cataract formation, and the changes in the lens metabolome that lead to these proteomic changes. The long term goal is to develop effective therapeutic strategies to delay or prevent age-related nuclear cataract.
