Personal profile


Dr. Joshua Clayton completed his PhD in Genetics at the University of Western Australia in 2018. This work investigated how microRNAs and enhancers regulate complement receptor gene expression in human immune cells. Since joining the team of Prof. Nigel Laing and A/Prof Gina Ravenscroft in 2018, he has contributed to a range of projects including: characterisation of disease-causing short tandem repeat expansions, development of splicing assays to assess whether variants of unknown significance impact mRNA splicing, development of cell and animal models of muscle disease, and development and testing of therapies for the treatment of neuromuscular diseases.

His current research focus centres around the use of induced pluripotent stem cells (iPSCs) to model muscle diseases and test treatments.
