Miss Josefine Eck


I am currently an MPhil student at the University of Cambridge studying basic and translational neuroscience. I am intrigued by the complexity of neurological dysfunctions and the consequences when individuals lose certain parts of the brain. I am particularly interested in exploring neurodegenerative diseases and how they mediate the interaction between neurobiochemical processes and people’s behaviour, predicting one’s actions and well-being. Understanding neurodegenerative diseases is particularly crucial to me due to their high prevalence and substantial impact on the ageing population. However, I am also very interested in exploring biopsychosocial factors in neurodevelopmental disorders. My primary career goal is to pursue further research at PhD level in the field of translational neuroscience.
