Professor Cox has a long-standing research interest in the rare diseases.
His laboratory is currently developing gene therapy for serious neurodegenerative disorders, including Tay-Sachs and Sandhoff diseases and plays a major role in researching the causes of, and developing treatments for, Krabbes disease and Gaucher disease.
In addition Professor Cox, and his group in Cambridge have well-established links with charities and Government-sponsored bodies, which can help bring laboratory work to patients who need to benefit from the research.
Dr Shara Cohen said “We hope that RareCareUK will have a long and rewarding relationship with Professor Cox and thank him for his time, ongoing support and, most of all his enthusiasm for what we are hoping to achieve”
