  • Dr Koby Baranes
    I am using forward reprogramming methods to generate oligodendrocytes and other glial cells from human pluripotent stem cells. The main goal of my research is to establish a model system which will allow to study myelination both in normal and in...
  • Sophia Borgeest Gesa Sophia Borgeest
    I'm a PhD student working with Dr Rogier Kievit in the executive processes group at the MRC CBU. I use psychometric techniques in large-sample, multimodal, longitudinal datasets to address how the human brain ages. Specifically, I am investigating...
  • Carol Brayne Professor Carol Brayne
    My research programme is based around longitudinal population based studies of people aged 65 and above, running since 1985. They include collections of blood, and are linked to the Cambridge Brain Bank. Opportunities exist for translation from la...
  • Professor Michael Coleman
    We study axon degeneration and its roles in neurodegenerative disease. One focus is proteins regulating the degeneration of injured axons (‘Wallerian degeneration'), which we have linked into a molecular pathway. Disease models involving similar m...
  • Mr Jacob Dundee
    My project is to understand the role of microglia in development, tauopathy, and ageing. As a person get older, microglia have been found to ‘eat’ synapses of stressed but still functional neurons, possibly driving the disease progression of many ...
  • Handan Elaman
    The aim of my research is to further our understanding of the mechanisms underlying age-related axon loss using models of accelerated ageing.
  • Dr Hugo Fernandes
    I am interested in understanding the molecular mechanisms underlying neuronal cell loss in Parkinson’s and Alzheimer’s diseases. In particular, we are exploring the role of oxidative stress and ER stress in human (iPSC-derived) dopamine neurons us...
  • Emilio  Fernandez-Egea Dr Emilio Fernandez-Egea
    My research interests are mostly the biological and clinical aspects of chronic schizophrenia. I’m the Clozapine Clinic Lead for the local MH Trust (Cambridgeshire and Peterborough NHS Foundation Trust). We study treatment resistant schizophrenia ...
  • Dr Delia Fuhrmann
    I am interested in lifespan development and plasticity. My current research focus is executive functions, such as reasoning and working memory, and their neural substrates. I am investigating this topic using mostly large, publicly available data-...
  • Miss Deborah Green
    The research I undertake investigates memory processes and the associated brain networks, supervised by Dr Jon Simons. Primarily I have carried out research into ageing and memory and also the role of the Angular Gyrus and its involvement in inte...
  • Gunther Klobe
    I am interested in human decision-making across the adult lifespan. In particular, I investigate how much we can learn about individual decision-making processes by analysing a person's performance on simple perceptual reaction tasks. Plenty of va...
  • Dr Ece Kocagoncu
    At the Cambridge Centre for FTD, under the supervision of Prof James Rowe I work in dementia biomarker research. The projects I work in are Cam-CAN Frail, New Therapeutics in Alzheimer's disease (NTAD), Deep and Frequent Phenotyping Project (DFP) ...
  • Zoe Kourtzi Professor Zoe Kourtzi
    My work aims to understand the role of learning and experience in enabling humans of all ages to translate sensory experience into complex decisions and adaptive behaviours. Adaptive cognitive abilities are critical for survival and social interac...
  • Dr George Savva
    I am an epidemiologist with a background in statistics. My work is based on the MRC Cognitive Function and Ageing Study (www.cfas.ac.uk for a full description of the study), a large lognitudinal study of ageing set in the population of England an...
  • Meredith Shafto Dr Meredith Shafto
    My research focuses on the effect of normal ageing on language comprehension and production. This research takes place at the Centre for Speech, Language, and the Brain, www.csl.psychol.cam.ac.uk Topics include how ageing affects language product...
  • Alessio Vagnoni Dr Alessio Vagnoni
    The main goal of my research is to better understand the mechanisms of neuronal ageing in vivo. I am particularly interested in studying how macromolecules, proteins and organelles are trafficked within neuronal axons and how this process is regul...
  • Noham Wolpe
    I am currently a junior doctor and a visiting fellow at Professor James Rowe's laboratory. My research interests lie in understanding the changes in the motor system that occur across the lifespan and in cases of disease. I use behavioural tasks...
