Dr Mark Evans
Lecturer/ Hon Consultant
Dr Mark Evans is pleased to consider applications from prospective PhD students.
My group are interested in (1) how brain detects changes in blood glucose and how this glucose-sensing interacts with peripheral metabolism; (2) how defences against hypoglycaemia (low blood sugar) may become abnormal in diabetes; (3) the short and long term effects of episodes of hypoglycaemia on brain using imaging techniques such as fMRI; (4) new and innovative methods for non-invasively monitoring blood glucose in diabetes to try and avoid hypoglycaemia
Insulin clamp studies
Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI)
Positron Emission Tomography (PET)
