  • Umar  Sadat Dr Umar Sadat
    1. Magnetic resonance imaging of atherosclerotic plaques 2. Applied biomechanics of atherosclerotic plaques and other cardiovascular pathologies 3. Contrast-induced-nephropathy 4. Ischaemic Pre-conditioning in patients undergoing open and endovas...
  • Barbara Sahakian Professor Barbara Sahakian FMedSci DSc
    My research is aimed at understanding the neural basis of cognitive, emotional and behavioural dysfunction in order to develop more effective pharmacological and psychological treatments. The focus of my lab is on early detection, differential dia...
  • Lisa Saksida Dr Lisa Saksida
    We are working toward a better understanding of the psychological processes underlying memory and perception through a programme of theoretically-driven experimental research using both healthy subjects and brain-damaged populations. Research in m...
  • Idalmis Santiesteban Dr Idalmis Santiesteban
    My research interest is social cognition, particularly self-other processes. My PhD work investigated the control of self-other representations in visual perspective taking, the inhibition of imitation and theory of mind, under the supervision of ...
  • Stephen Sawcer Professor Stephen Sawcer
    My group researches multiple sclerosis. We use genetic analysis to identify relevant variants and then attempt to understand the immunological and neurobiological consequences of these using expression studies and functional assays. As well as con...
  • William Schafer Dr William Schafer
    The fundamental nature of mental phenomena such as perception, learning and memory is one of the remaining scientific mysteries. Since the neuroanatomy of mammalian nervous systems is exceedingly complex and incompletely characterized, it is diffi...
  • Wolfram Schultz Professor Wolfram Schultz
    Our group is interested to relate the mechanics of brain activity to measurable behaviour. We combine neurophysiological, imaging and behavioural techniques to investigate the neural correlates of goal-directed. We are interested in outcome value ...
  • Christof Schwiening Dr Christof Schwiening
    Electrical activity of neurones is associated with calcium influx through various channels. Most neurones extrude this calcium very rapidly on the plasma-membrane calcium pump (PMCA). Our research shows that this extrusion occurs in exchange for h...
  • Rodolphe Sepulchre Professor Rodolphe Sepulchre
    We use tools from feedback control theory and machine learning to study the modulation and robustness of neuronal circuits. We are particularly interested in the mechanisms that transfer rhythmic activity across a range of temporal and spatial sca...
  • Ben Simons Professor Ben Simons
    I am interested in applying methods of non-equilibrium statistical mechanics and population dynamics to lineage tracing studies to investigate mechanisms of stem cell fate in development and maintenance. As well as neurogenesis in adult mammalian ...
  • Jon Simons Dr Jon Simons
    Our research investigates the role of brain regions such as the frontal, medial temporal, and parietal lobes in human memory. This work involves inter-relating cognitive hypotheses with evidence from functional neuroimaging of healthy volunteers ...
  • John Skidmore Dr John Skidmore
    I am a medicinal chemist and drug discovery leader interested in working collaboratively with academics and industry in order to translate basic neurodegeneration research into potential new treatments. The Alzheimer’s Research UK Cambridge Drug ...
  • Peter Smielewski Dr Peter Smielewski
    In an established environment of Clinical Neuroscience Dept large quantities of data can be captured from bed-side monitors. Using that data, continuous assessment of changing cerebrovascular haemodynamics and oxygenation is possible but requires ...
  • Ewan Smith Dr Ewan Smith
    The main interest of the Smith lab is to understand the molecular mechanisms by which sensory neurones detect noxious stimuli, so-called nociceptors. We are particularly interested in how acid activates nociceptors in both physiological and pathop...
  • Patrice Smith Professor Patrice Smith
    Promoting regeneration and repair of the damaged CNS, with a particular focus on understanding the contribution of neuronal intrinsic mechanisms in axon regeneration.
  • Michael Spencer Dr Michael Spencer
    I am interested in the scientific investigation of psychiatric disorders, particularly through the integration of clinical research methods together with brain imaging. I led a team of researchers at the Department of Psychiatry, Cambridge, that ...
  • Maria Grazia  Spillantini Professor Maria Grazia Spillantini FRS FMedSci
    Our interest is in the identification of the mechanisms leading to neuronal death and clinical phenotype in diseases such as Alzheimer's disease, Parkinson's disease and frontotemporal dementia. In particular we study the role of microtubule-assoc...
  • Professor Peter St George-Hyslop
    My laboratory focuses upon understanding the causes and molecular mechanisms of neurodegenerative diseases such as Alzheimer's Disease, Parkinson's Disease and Fronto-Temporal Dementia. We and others have shown that these diseases are frequently c...
  • Emmanuel  A Stamatakis Dr Emmanuel A Stamatakis
    My research aims to decode complex relationships between remote and/or proximal brain regions, which form networks at rest or during goal directed behaviour. This includes work on network adaptive behaviour (reorganisation/plasticity) triggered by...
  • Li Su Dr Li Su
    I am Senior Research Fellow from ARUK in University of Cambridge, after working in the Institute of Psychiatry at King's College London and MRC Cognition and Brain Sciences Unit. I am also a Visiting Professor in China-UK Centre for Cognition and...
  • John Suckling John Suckling
    Neuroimaging is a major contributor to the renaissance of experimental psychiatry and psychology. Drawing on the extensive infrastructure of Cambridge Neuroscience and Department of Psychiatry’s close links between research and clinical practice, ...
  • Denes Szucs Dr Denes Szucs
    Szucs is a cognitive neuroscientist doing research on the representaiton of mathematics in the brain and on perceptual/motor integration and conflict detection/resolution. He is using behavioral methods, electro-physiology (EEG) and functional mag...
