Denis I. Crane
Denis I. Crane obtained his Ph.D. degree from Griffith University in 1982 in the area of biochemistry of peroxisomes and catalase. He undertook postdoctoral training in Düsseldorf, Germany, working in the field of oxidative stress before returning to Griffith where he was appointed as a Lecturer in 1987 and a Full Professor in 2008. His research fields include molecular cell biology, biochemistry, and human genetics, with a focus on the mechanisms of import of proteins into peroxisomes and the human peroxisomal disorders. Current research focuses on the characterisation of mouse models of Zellweger syndrome, as well as the molecular basis of neurodegeneration of this and other neurodegenerative disorders.
