  • Clemens Kaminski Professor Clemens Kaminski
    We develop advanced microscopic imaging techniques that permit us to elucidate molecular mechanisms of neurodegeneration. We use techniques such as lifetime, spectrum and polarisation resolved imaging that inform on protein misfolding, aggregat...
  • Gabriele Kaminski Schierle Dr Gabriele Kaminski Schierle
    Our current research is focused on uncovering the molecular mechanisms that cause proteins to misfold and aggregate in live model systems of Alzheimer’s Disease (AD) and Parkinson’s disease (PD). To enable this work we have developed a range of ad...
  • Jonathan Kanen Jonathan Kanen
    I am an MD candidate from the USA and a Gates Cambridge scholar working on my PhD in the Department of Psychology. The brain chemical serotonin is implicated in a wide range of affective and behavioural processes and is a key drug target in nume...
  • Ragnhildur Thora Karadottir Dr Ragnhildur Thora Karadottir
    My lab’s interests are neurotransmitter signalling to oligodendrocytes and their progenitor cells, in both health and disease. Oligodendrocytes produce myelin (in the CNS), which speeds the propagation of the action potential. When the myelin s...
  • Muzaffer  Kaser Dr Muzaffer Kaser
    I am a psychiatrist interested in brain substrates of cognitive impairments associated with psychiatric disorders, I am investigating the mechanisms underlying cognitive dysfunction in depression with a particular focus on pro-cognitive medication.
  • Napoleon  Katsos Dr Napoleon Katsos
    I am interested in how developmental research can inform theoretical linguistic inquiry and vice versa. My particular focus is in the area of semantics and pragmatics, and in language learning by monolingual and bilingual children as well as child...
  • ILIAS KAZANIS Dr ILIAS KAZANIS
    My research focuses on the regulation of adult brain cytogenesis, especilly on the biology of the subependymal zone neurogenic/gliogenic niche. I am interested in the role of components of the extracellular matrix (ECM/ such as integrins, laminins...
  • Barry Keverne Professor Barry Keverne
    Professor Keverne has long standing experience in behavioural neuroscience and has, in the past 10 years, brought molecular genetic techniques to focus on brain development and investigate how genetic perturbations of the brain influence brain fun...
  • Roger Keynes Professor Roger Keynes
    Growth cone repulsion is an important mechanism controlling axon growth. During development it guides axons by excluding them from repulsive regions of the embryo. Following injury to the adult brain it may also block axon regeneration, with major...
  • Seyed-Mahdi Khaligh-Razavi Seyed-Mahdi Khaligh-Razavi
    Understanding the human visual system using non-invasive brain imaging methods, and developing computational models of object recognition.
  • Dr Golam Khandaker
    Working at the interface between immunology and psychiatry, my research examines novel immunological mechanism and treatment for depression, schizophrenia and other psychiatric disorders using epidemiological, genetic and treatment studies. I am...
  • Rogier Kievit Dr Rogier Kievit
    My research focuses on using psychometric models to understand neurodevelopmental changes in executive functions. These cognitive abilities, such as reasoning, problem solving and goal management, develop rapidly during adolescence and often show ...
  • Monica Killen
    My PhD is focused on understanding the relationship between metabolic dysfunction and inflammation in traumatic brain injury (TBI). Many TBI patients experience a change in normal brain chemistry, which causes further neurodegeneration and cell de...
  • Manfred Kitzbichler Dr Manfred Kitzbichler
    Having a physics background, I am applying general concepts to the analysis of brain activation. This involves both fMRI and MEG, resting state as well as task related data. In particular I am interested in understanding the spatio-temporal dynami...
  • Professor David Klenerman
    Small soluble protein aggregates are thought to play a key role in the initial development of neurodegenerative diseases, such as Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s disease, but are difficult to study using conventional methods due to their low concent...
  • Dr Franziska Knolle
    I am interested in investigating the underlying mechanisms of predictive processing. Especially, I wish to explore how dysfunctional predictive processing might lead to various symptoms of psychiatric and neurological disorders, such as delusions ...
  • Tuomas Knowles Professor Tuomas Knowles
    We work on the physico-chemical properties and behaviour of biological molecules and soft materials. The research in the group is highly interdisciplinary. Members of the group have a wide range of backgrounds. We used methods from biochemistry, c...
  • Dr Ece Kocagoncu
    I am interested in how memory is represented, organised and accessed in the brain, executive functions, and oscillatory and connectivity dynamics associated with these processes. ​ Currently I am working as a Reseach Associate with Professor James...
  • Aleksandr Kogan Dr Aleksandr Kogan
    My lab investigates the prosociality and well-being from biological, psychological, and cross-cultural perspectives. In particular, we are highly interested in cooperation, trust, altruism, positive emotions, close relationships, happiness, physic...
  • Johannes Kohl Dr Johannes Kohl
    Neural circuits underlying social behaviours
  • Ms Sara Kohnke
    Our group studies the role of protein sensing in the hypothalamus - how it affects body weight and food intake.
  • Andrew Kolarik Dr Andrew Kolarik
    I am a Research Associate at Cambridge University in Professor Brian Moore’s research group. My work looks at auditory perception among hearing impaired and blind listeners. I am interested in how sensory impairment affects spatial awareness, and...
