Associate Professor Dickson completed a BSc (Hons) and PhD at the University of Tasmania.

Research Interests
Associate Professor Dickson's research, in collaboration with other members of the Neurorepair Group, is focussed on investigating the neuronal response to both trauma and neurodegenerative disease - particularly Alzheimer's Disease, Parkinson's disease, Dementia with Lewy Bodies and Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (Motor Neuron Disease). A better understanding of the mechanism underlying these diseases is essential for the development of much need therapeutics for these devastating conditions. She currently co-supervises five PhD students and one honours student working across these areas.
