  • Elizabeth Warburton Dr Elizabeth Warburton
    Research interests are as follows 1. Molecular imaging of atheroma - particularly carotid plaque imaging using PET/CT and MRI techniques. Both Clinical and microPET imaging. Proof of principle trials of novel atheroma drugs with imaging biomarker...
  • Trevor Wardill Dr Trevor Wardill
    I am a sensory neurobiologist. I investigate evolution of dynamic cephalopod iridescence and colour vision in flies, how they evolved, how they function and what purpose they serve in the ecology of the animal. In particular, I am interested in un...
  • Colin Watts Dr Colin Watts
    Lab-based research is focused on the genomics of glioblastoma (GBM) and in the role of glial progenitors in their evolution and development. We are also interested in developing patient-specific models of GBM to evaluate intra-tumour variability i...
  • Andrew Welchman Dr Andrew Welchman
    I am interested in how the brain brings together information from the senses to support perception and interaction with the rapidly changing world. Work in my lab integrates psychophysics, movement recording, modelling and brain imaging techniques...
  • David Whitebread Dr David Whitebread
    My research focuses on the development of Executive Functioning, metacognition and self-regulation in young children. Neuroscience projects I have supervised have focused on inhibitory control and its relation to metacognition and emotion regulati...
  • Joyce Whittington Dr Joyce Whittington
    Early research on specific learning disabilities - dyslexia - and associated cognitve deficits. For the last 10 years research has focussed on various prevalence, cognitive and behavioural aspects of Prader-Willi syndrome. Most of the latter is d...
  • Alex Whitworth Dr Alex Whitworth
    My lab is interested in understanding the mechanisms of mitochondrial homeostasis in relation to neurodegenerative diseases such as Parkinson's disease and motor neuron disease. We use a combination of the powerful genetic techniques of Drosophila...
  • Ian Wilkinson Dr Ian Wilkinson
    My research is clinically orientated and centres on the physiology and pharmacology of the cardiovascular system, and particularly the large arteries and endothelial function. As a clinical pharmacologist, I combine detailed physiological measure...
  • Paul Wilkinson Dr Paul Wilkinson
    Paul Wilkinson is University Lecturer and Honorary Consultant in Child and Adolescent Psychiatry at the University of Cambridge. His main research interests are the epidemiology and treatment of self-harm and depression. He investigates clinica...
  • Guy Williams Dr Guy Williams
    Our group’s research interests lie broadly in nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR). This phenomenon allows data to be collected noninvasively on both the structure and function of the human brain. We research novel acquisition methods to provide contr...
  • Caroline Williams-Gray Dr Caroline Williams-Gray MRCP PhD
    My work focuses on cognitive dysfunction in Parkinson's disease. This is a common feature of the disease, with around half of patients developing dementia within the first 10 years from diagnosis, which has a devastating impact on quality of life ...
  • Dr Ian Winter
    Primitive neural mechanisms of auditory scene analysis. My research searches for neurophysiological correlates of the cues necessary for the segregation and fusion of auditory objects. This work is carried out in close collaboration with psychop...
  • Daniel Wolpert Professor Daniel Wolpert FMedSci FRS
    The group uses engineering approaches to understand how the human brain controls movement. The work includes both computational modelling and experimental approaches using robotic and virtual reality interfaces. Research areas include motor planni...
  • Dr Peter Wooding
    Correlation between placental structure and function using light and electron microscopy for structure and immunocytochemistry and in situ hybridisation for function. The focus is mainly on ruminants but includes comparative studies on a wide vari...
