The Cumming Laboratory, led by Professor Robert C. Cumming, is located in the Department of Biology at Western University in London, Ontario, Canada.
We study the changes in brain metabolism and antioxidant defence that occur with age. We are trying to understand how age-dependent alterations in metabolic and antioxidant enzyme activities contribute to neurodegenerative disorders, including Alzheimer’s disease and Huntington’s disease.
