  • Clemence Blouet Dr Clemence Blouet
    Impairments in central pathways regulating energy homeostasis can cause profound metabolic dysfunctions, but current knowledge is insufficient to develop safe and efficient therapies targeting these pathways. Brain metabolic sensing is based on th...
  • Lucy Cheke Dr Lucy Cheke
    My research concerns the mechanism by which the brain creates, maintains and manipulates representations of events that are not currently available to perception. These representations can take many forms: they can be memories of veridical past ev...
  • Tamana Darwish Miss Tamana Darwish
    Feeding behaviour and metabolic state are regulated by many factors- one of the them being nutrient intake. I am interested in how the body responds physiologically the intake of nutrients, in particular to amino acids, which are known to promote ...
  • Fiona Gribble Professor Fiona Gribble
    Endocrine communication between the gut and brain, relaying food-related signals that control appetite and metabolism.
  • Dr Ed Harding
    I am primarily interested in the neuronal control of energy balance and how this is altered in disease. My specific focus is the influence of obesity-associated metabolic syndromes on susceptibility to neurodegenerative diseases.
  • Florian Merkle Dr Florian Merkle
    My laboratory uses pluripotent stem cells to model human diseases that arise from the loss of aberrant function of neurons in the hypothalamus that regulate essential physiological and behavioural processes. In particular, obesity is thought to re...
  • 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 Sofia Papadia
    I am interested in the neuronal control of obesity, investigating the molecular mechanisms and signalling pathways by which genes in the brain are regulating energy homeostasis. I have been a member of Prof. I.S. Farooqi's team from 2010-2014 at ...
  • Naomi Penfold Naomi Penfold
    I am a PhD student on the Wellcome Trust programme in Metabolic and Cardiovascular Disease. I work at the Institute of Metabolic Science in the lab of Professor Sue Ozanne. We are interested in how the early life environment (pre- and postnatal) c...
  • Joseph Polex Wolf Dr Joseph Polex Wolf
    I'm a Postdoctoral Research Associate based in Dr Giles Yeo's group within the Institute of Metabolic Science. Our group investigates the neural control of energy homeostasis, with focus on the genetic influences mediating hypothalamic food intak...
  • Dr Eleanor Raffan BVM&S PhD DipECVIM-CA MRCVS
    I am interested in the neural control of energy homeostasis in the body. We study canine models of obesity to discover new genes linked to obesity and interrogate the mechanisms in which genetic variation can influence neural control of metabolis...
  • Frank Reimann Dr Frank Reimann
    Research in the lab is currently focusing on enteroendocrine cells, especially glucagon-like peptide-1 (GLP-1) secreting cells, which we hope to target in the treatment of diabetes and obesity. GLP-1 secreting cells are electrically excitable and ...
  • Adam Tozer Dr Adam Tozer
    I am an electrophysiologist working in the Hypothalamus and projecting areas, interested in the neuronal control of diet, and mechanisms controlling food intake and energy balance. My background is in synaptic physiology and neuronal homeostasis...
  • Miss Natalie Wallis
    Studying the genetics basis of obesity, with focus on neuroendocrine genes in brain neurons. This offers the chance to better understand the mechanisms of appetite control and energy balance in the CNS. My PhD focus will be on the genetics of obes...
  • Giles Yeo Dr Giles Yeo
    I study brain control of body-weight, and currently have two main aims: Identifying new players in the hypothalamic control of energy balance. a. Genetic studies point to the brain as having a crucial role in modulating appetitive behaviour. A col...
  • Hisham  Ziauddeen Dr Hisham Ziauddeen MRCPsych PhD
    I am a Senior Clinical Research Associate working with Prof. Paul Fletcher. I work on brain reward systems using pharmacological fMRI and behavioural measures, to study the role of environmental influences and opioid and dopaminergic systems in co...
