  • Folma Buss Dr Folma Buss
    We study the cellular roles of myosin motor proteins and how they mediate the organization of cellular compartments and control intracellular transport along actin filaments. One of our major aims is to understand the mechanism of cargo selection ...
  • Dr Janet Deane
    We study the role of lipid processing pathways in demyelinating neurodegenerative disease. We are interested in how the composition of cellular membranes is maintained and what the effects are when this composition is altered. Lipids and proteins ...
  • Dr Ichrak DRISSI
    My research interests aim to understand genetic alterations underlying painlessness and excess pain disorders. By analysing DNA from patients suffering from chronic pain or don't experience pain, and using transgenic mice, we try to identify cell...
  • Dr Simon Edwards
    Alzheimer's Research drug discovery institute.
  • 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 ...
  • Dr Maria Angeles Fernandez
    My main interest is the study of signalling pathways and molecular mechanisms involved in neurodegenerative diseases like Alzheimer's and Huntington's disease, and its use as a target for the possible therapy of these diseases. Actually, my rese...
  • Deniz Ghaffari
    The chronic presence of cell injury and damage in Alzheimer’s disease (AD) leads to glial activation and increased production of inflammatory cytokines, which in turn lead to further neuronal damage (Morales I. et al., 2014). Recent Genome wide-as...
  • Dr Maria Jimenez-Sanchez
    I am interested in the study of neurodegenerative diseases such as Huntington´s disease that are associated with the formation of intracellular protein aggregates. My research focuses on exploring the molecular mechanisms that cells employ to pr...
  • Dr Yoo Koung (Y.K.) Ko
    I am a molecular neuroscientist interested in elucidating molecular and cellular mechanisms behind disorders of brains and translating this understanding to novel therapies. My current research focuses on finding drugs that are beneficial to the t...
  • Dr Mike Nahorski
    My research interests lie in the identification and understanding of genetic alterations which affect pain sensation in humans. This work is highly translational; working with clinicians to define populations with tightly phenotyped pain condition...
  • Mr Daniel Rainbow
    I study the genetics of autoimmune diseases.
  • Lucy Raymond Dr Lucy Raymond
    The group aims to understand the molecular mechanisms underlying intellectual disability in humans. Our main focus is on families with X linked disease. In collaboration with The Wellcome Trust Sanger Institute, we are using a new approach to dise...
  • Evan Reid Dr Evan Reid
    My group's research is focussed on the hereditary spastic paraplegias, genetic conditions where the corticospinal tract axons degenerate. HSPs selectively involve axons while sparing the neuronal cell bodies, so we study them to understand molecul...
  • Rhys Roberts Dr Rhys Roberts
    Our group is interested in peripheral nerve diseases, particularly the inherited peripheral neuropathies, Charcot-Marie-Tooth disease (CMT). We have focused on the demyelinating forms of CMT, where defects in intracellular membrane trafficking p...
  • Dr Tim Rooney
    I am a research associate at the Alzheimer's Research UK Drug Discovery Institute where I work as a medicinal chemist on a variety of projects related to neurodegeneration. With expertise in drug discovery, organic chemistry and chemical biology, ...
  • David  Rubinsztein Professor David Rubinsztein
    The pathogenesis of diseases caused by codon reiteration mutations (like Huntington’s disease and oculopharangeal muscular dystrophy). Description of research: We are studying the pathogenesis of diseases caused by codon reiteration mutations, l...
  • John Skidmore Dr John Skidmore
    I am a medicinal chemist and drug discovery leader interested in working collaboratively with academics and industry in order to translate basic neurodegeneration research into potential new treatments. The Alzheimer’s Research UK Cambridge Drug ...
  • Professor Peter St George-Hyslop
    My laboratory focuses upon understanding the causes and molecular mechanisms of neurodegenerative diseases such as Alzheimer's Disease, Parkinson's Disease and Fronto-Temporal Dementia. We and others have shown that these diseases are frequently c...
  • Dr Yi-Chun Tung
    My research interests focus on hypothalamic pathways involved in the regulation of energy homeostasis. During my current post, I am contributing to fundamental systems physiology approaches in rodents. With extensive expertise in hypothalamic neur...
