  • Sadaf Farooqi Professor Sadaf Farooqi
    Using a candidate gene approach in patients with severe, early onset obesity recruited to the Genetics Of Obesity Study (GOOS), we have identified patients with mutations in genes encoding leptin, the leptin receptor and targets of leptin action ...
  • Giorgio  Favrin Dr Giorgio Favrin
    The focus of my research is to build and analyze the network of pathways associated with Alzheimer’s disease. We are currently measuring these interaction data in the yeast S. cerevisiae (baker’s yeast). We use these data, in conjunction with fr...
  • James Fawcett Professor James Fawcett
    Axon regeneration in the damaged CNS: Regeneration of axons after CNS damage is blocked by several molecules in the environment and by loss of intrinsic regeneration ability, We modify the environment to make it more permissive and modify axonal ...
  • Anne Ferguson-Smith Professor Anne Ferguson-Smith
    Genomic imprinting is an epigenetic mechanism causing genes to be expressed depending on their parental origin. Our research investigates the mechanism and evolution of genomic imprinting and the function of imprinted genes in development and dise...
  • Emilio  Fernandez-Egea Dr Emilio Fernandez-Egea
    My research interests are mostly the biological and clinical aspects of chronic schizophrenia. I’m the Clozapine Clinic Lead for the local MH Trust (Cambridgeshire and Peterborough NHS Foundation Trust). We study treatment resistant schizophrenia ...
  • Paul Fletcher Professor Paul Fletcher
    I am interested in psychosis. I agree with the long tradition of clinical psychiatric research which suggests that, during a psychotic illness, the world is a strange place because strange associations are formed and inconsequential stimuli are as...
  • Professor Thanasis Fokas PhD-MD
    Analytical algorithms for several medical imaging techniques including PAT, SPECT, MEG, EEG.
  • Rene Frank Dr Rene Frank
    I am interested in understanding the native molecular architecture of synapses with a particular focus on postsynaptic membranes that contain N-methyl D-aspartic acid receptors (NMDARs). NMDARs mediate Ca2+-dependent signalling, acting in concer...
  • Dr David Franklin
    I am interested in how we are able to develop models of the external world and use these to adapt our movements to new experiences. I am currently studying the adaptation of humans to novel force fields generated with a 2 degree-of-freedom robotic...
  • Robin Franklin Professor Robin Franklin
    Robin Franklin is Professor of Stem Cell Medicine at the Wellcome Trust-MRC Cambridge Stem Cell Institute. His lab works on the mechanisms of CNS regeneration with a particular focus on remyelination, an adult stem/precursor cell-mediated process ...
  • Kristian Franze Dr Kristian Franze
    We are taking an interdisciplinary approach to investigate how cellular forces, local cell and tissue compliance and cellular mechanosensitivity contribute to CNS development and disease. Methods we are exploiting include atomic force microscopy, ...
  • Tim Fryer Dr Tim Fryer
    My research concentrates on positron emission tomography (PET) methodology, with particular emphasis on the quantitative accuracy of the physiological parameters derived from the data. Current research themes are: parametric mapping using b...
