  • John O'Brien Dr John O'Brien CBiol FSB
    Working on the application of improving biolistic delivery of getting DNA or fluorescent dyes into live cells. Biolistic transfection is proving an increasingly popular method of incorporating DNA or dyes into cells that are difficult to transfect...
  • John T O'Brien Professor John T O'Brien
    My research interests in dementia include the role of biomarkers, especially MRI, SPECT and PET imaging, in the differential and early diagnosis of dementia, including identifying those ‘at risk’ of future cognitive decline and developing markers ...
  • Claire O'Callaghan Dr Claire O'Callaghan
    I am a clinical research fellow with a focus on neuropsychiatric symptoms in neurodegenerative conditions. Symptoms such as apathy, depression, impulsivity and social impairments are common in neurodegenerative disease. My research takes a trans...
  • Cahir O'Kane Dr Cahir O'Kane
    We use Drosophila as a model organism to study synapse function. Questions of major interest include the mechanisms of synaptic vesicle trafficking, and the roles of cellular trafficking pathways in the pathology of neurodegenerative diseases. Rec...
  • Timothy O'Leary Dr Timothy O'Leary
    How do nervous systems adapt and repair themselves? How do they exhibit coherent function in spite of variable underlying properties? I study these questions using theory, computational models and experiments. For example, it is well known that n...
  • John O'Neill Dr John O'Neill
    The causes and consequences of cellular circadian timekeeping and its interaction with sleep.
  • Stephen O'Rahilly Professor Stephen O'Rahilly FRS FMedSci
    My research has been concerned with the elucidation of the basic causes of obesity and Type 2 diabetes at a molecular level and the translation of those discoveries into improved diagnosis and therapy for patients. My work has uncovered several p...
  • Dr Shigekazu Oda
    My long-term goal is to discover a general principle of information process in a neural circuit. The main subject is that 'how biological system behave as a system?' To answer this question, I am using a simple model organism, C. elegans by using ...
  • Ms Lydia Oikonomidis
    I am interested in the interactions between the amygdala/hippocampal circuit and different regions of the prefrontal cortex, particularly the anterior and posterior orbitofrontal cortex. My interest focuses on how these areas interact in emotional...
  • Andrea Olguin Andrea Olguin
    My research focuses on how bilingualism influences the neural encoding of attended and unattended naturalistic speech.
  • Birgitta  Olofsson Dr Birgitta Olofsson
    How does an animal evaluate food and how is this information used to modify its feeding behaviour appropriately? In many animals food provides a reinforcing feedback after it is eaten that influences subsequent food-seeking behaviour. Variation ...
  • Wiktor Olszowy Mr Wiktor Olszowy
    I am a Clinical Neurosciences PhD student, interested primarily in statistics and neuroimaging. My current two areas of work are novel significance detection methods for fMRI experiments and MRI-based reconstruction methods of PET images.
  • Dr Alessandra Onida
    Neuropsychological rehabilitation, neural basis of behaviour
  • Andrew Osborne Dr Andrew Osborne
    My research interest lies in how stem cells offer neuroprotection to retinal ganglion cells with particular interest to how secreted factors prevent visual loss. My project focuses on how platelet-derived growth factor (PDGF) can reduce retinal d...
  • Julia Oswald
    Retinal Development in Zebrafish
  • Dr Koliane Ouk
    My research focuses on understanding the mechanisms underlying the disruption of circadian rhythms in Huntington's disease.
  • Joanne Outtrim
    Acute Brain Injury Program
