Simon is an Associate Professor in the School of Medical and Health Sciences where he leads the Collaborative Genomics Group. Simon is also currently the Deputy Chief Scientific Officer of the Cooperative Research Centre (CRC) for Mental Health.
Associate Professor Laws currently leads The Collaborative Genomics Group, within the Centre of Excellence for Alzheimer’s Disease Research and Care part of ECU’s School of Medical and Health Sciences. His research primarily focuses on understanding the genetic and epigenetic architecture of Alzheimer’s Disease and related phenotypes, such as changes in memory performance and pathognomonic features. His group utilizes an integrative “omic” approach to Alzheimer’s Disease research through combining genetic, epigenetic and comprehensive longitudinal phenotype data. With the following primary research foci:
Understanding the Genomic Architecture of Rates of Change in AD-related Phenotypes
The interaction of genomics and modifiable lifestyle factors and the impact on rates of change in AD-related phenotypes
Associate Professor Laws also undertakes broader genetic and epigenetic collaborative research with scientists in the Australian research community.
