Dr Nick Cunniffe is pleased to consider applications from prospective PhD students.
Department of Clinical Neurosciences
Cambridge Centre for Myelin Repair
I am an Academic Clinical Lecturer in Neurology. My research is centred on the different ways of promoting and measuring remyelination in people living with multiple sclerosis; it is anticipated that through enhancing remyelination of damaged nerves we can delay, prevent, or reverse the progression of disability.
I work on clinical trials, in particular the Cambridge Centre for Myelin Repair remyelination trials and, at the Cambridge Clinical Vision Laboratory, I use visual evoked potentials (VEP), optical coherence tomography (OCT), and tests of eye movements and visual function to measure the effects of remyelinating and neuroprotective therapies. I am also working to integrate these measures of remyelination and axonal health into routine clinical practice, alongside MRI-based measures.
Outside of the lab, I am committed to medical education. I supervise neuroscience to medical students at Gonville and Caius College and am co-author of an undergraduate neuroscience textbook.
