  • 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 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 of onset and...
  • 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 are interested in the basic biology of axonal ER, and its relevance to neurodegenerative disease, using Drosophila as a model. Axonal ER forms a continuous tubular network throughout the neuron, comparable to a “neuron within a neuron”, potenti...
  • 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 Deborah Oakley
    My research investigates the role that cardiovascular health plays in cognitive ageing. Many cognitive abilities decline with age, although there are marked differences between individuals in the rate and extent of decline. This diversity in agein...
  • 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 ...
  • Andrea Olguin Andrea Olguin
    My research focuses on how bilingualism influences the neural encoding of attended and unattended naturalistic speech.
  • Ms Bianca Oltean
    I am interested in the role of inflammation in mental health disorders. As part of the InPsych Lab, I am working on elucidating the possible links between inflammation and depression. We are using observational and experimental medicine studies ...
  • Dr Alessandra Onida
    Neuropsychological rehabilitation, neural basis of behaviour
  • Dr Amy Orben
    Amy’s research uses large-scale data to examine how digital technologies affect adolescent psychological well-being and mental health. She uses innovative and rigorous statistical methodology to shed new light on pressing questions debated in poli...
  • 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...
  • Joanne Outtrim
    Acute Brain Injury Program
  • Miss Zeynep Öztürk
    I am a first year PhD student and my project is for understanding endoplasmic reticulum (ER) organization and roles of this existence in neurons related to neurodegeneration. ER and mitochondria are two organelles firstly became dysfunctional duri...
