Professor John Hardy is a world-renowned geneticist and has devoted his career to studying the genetics and molecular pathogenesis of neurological disease. With over 23,000 citations, he is the most cited Alzheimer’s disease researcher in the UK (5th internationally) and in recognition of his achievements was recently elected a fellow of the Royal Society.

He was the first to identify a mutation in the gene encoding the β-amyloid precursor protein in families with early-onset Alzheimer’s disease and has also identified α-synuclein gene duplications as a cause of Parkinson’s disease. Professor Hardy is the author of over 350 articles and a recipient of numerous awards including the Met Life Prize, the Allied Signal Prize, the Potamkin Prize and the Annemarie Opprecht-Foundation award.
