  • Dwaipayan Adhya Mr Dwaipayan Adhya
    Autism is a complex neurodevelopmental disorder. Studies have shown that it affects more males than females. Prenatal exposure to sex steroids, especially, testosterone have been shown to be related to development of autism. Epigenetic changes hav...

  • Dr Gonca Bayraktar
    My research aims to understand how synaptic plasticity governs learning and memory function of the brain and how gradual loss of function or impairment leads to neurodegeneration. treatment of dementia like Alzheimer’s disease. My research focuses...
  • Dr Clare Buckley
    The vertebrate brain arises from a tube-like structure made from polarised neuroepithelial cells. These have a strict apico-basal orientation; they align their apical ends along a centrally located lumen. This organisation is important for later n...
  • Mr James Butler
    Recent studies have established dysfunctional evoked and induced gamma (40 Hz) oscillations as well as changes in parvalbumin (PV) interneurons in the brains of schizophrenic patients (Uhlhaas & Singer, 2010). I will express the optogenetic silenc...
  • Patrick Chinnery Professor Patrick Chinnery FRCP FMedSci
    I am interested in the genetic basis of neurological disorders, and particularly mitochondrial diseases. Mitochondria are the main source of energy within neurons and glia. Mutations in genes responsible for mitochondrial biogenesis are a major c...
  • Mr Bernard Cho
    My PhD project focuses on unravelling the genetics of cerebral small vessel disease (SVD). Whilst contributing to the 100,000 Genome Project, it aims to integrate genomic analysis and clinical data to assess the downstream implications of genotype...
  • Dr Leonidas Chouliaras
    My research interests include the role of epigenetic mechanisms in neurodegeneration, and particularly in Lewy Body Dementia, Alzheimer’s disease and mild cognitive impairment. My projects focus on genome-wide profiling of DNA methylation and hydr...
  • Alastair Compston Professor Alastair Compston
    My research interests focus on clinical and experimental demyelinating disease with an emphasis on multiple sclerosis - the commonest potentially disabling disease of young adults. The research group has a broad set of interests: we work on the a...
  • Damian Crowther Dr Damian Crowther
    The neuroscience group at AstraZeneca has particular interests in neurodegeneration, neuropsychiatry and pain. We are a highly collaborative group and keen to work productively with the Cambridge neuroscience community. More details at: www.azne...
  • Annabel Curle
    Investigating the role of the DNA damage response in Huntington's Disease.
  • Dr Andrea Dimitracopoulos
    After training as a Biomedical Engineer at the Sant'Anna School of Advanced Studies in Pisa, Andrea started his PhD in Theoretical Physics and Cell Biology at University College London, on the CoMPLEX programme. Under the supervision of Buzz Baum,...
  • Anne Ferguson-Smith Professor Anne Ferguson-Smith
    Genomic imprinting is an epigenetic mechanism causing genes to be expressed depending on their parental origin. Our research investigates the mechanism and evolution of genomic imprinting and the function of imprinted genes in development and dise...
  • Dana Galili Dr Dana Galili
    Did you ever wonder what makes males and females respond differently to the same stimulus? Sex differences are basic for reproduction, parenting and other social interactions. I work on Drosophila sexually dimorphic behaviours and their underlying...
  • Stephen Gamble Mr Stephen Gamble
    I have recently retired from the Cancer, Ageing and Somatic Mutation (CASM) team at the Sanger Institute. Previously I have worked for the MRC on the biological basis of mental illness using neurobiology, biochemistry and computing. I am also ...
  • Ryan Hamnett Dr Ryan Hamnett AMRSB
    Molecular, cellular and circuit-level components of the mammalian circadian system, specifically the contributions of different subpopulations of cells within the suprachiasmatic nucleus (SCN) to overall rhythmicity, such as rhythm generation, mai...
  • Dr Eric Harshfield
    My current research primarily focuses on utilising epidemiological, clinical, genetic, and imaging data to investigate relationships between vascular risk, stroke, and dementia. Examples of specific projects that I have been involved in include (1...
  • Becky Inkster Dr Becky Inkster
    I am a Neuroscientist passionate about digital interventions in mental health, social media data analysis, genomics, molecular biology, and neuroimaging. I am passionate about working with hard-to-reach, disadvantaged groups and youth culture. I...
  • Professor Hugh Markus
    I use molecular genetic and neuroimaging (MRI and Transcranial Doppler) techniques to investigate the pathogenesis of, and develop treatments for, cerebrovascular disease. A particular interest is in cerebral small vessel disease, a major cause of...
  • Professor John Mollon
    My research interests are in the visual perception of colour, motion, form and depth; the genetic basis for individual variations in perception; the nature of the information carried by the cerebral bus; and the history of neuroscience and of colo...
  • Dr Nicholas Mundy
    We study the evolutionary genetics of brain size and sensory systems in primates. In particular, we are interested in the evolution and selection of colour vision polymorphisms in New World monkeys and lemurs, the evolution of vomeronasal recept...
  • 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...
  • 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...
  • 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...
  • Stephen Sawcer Professor Stephen Sawcer
    My group researches multiple sclerosis. We use genetic analysis to identify relevant variants and then attempt to understand the immunological and neurobiological consequences of these using expression studies and functional assays. As well as con...
  • William Schafer Dr William Schafer
    The fundamental nature of mental phenomena such as perception, learning and memory is one of the remaining scientific mysteries. Since the neuroanatomy of mammalian nervous systems is exceedingly complex and incompletely characterized, it is diffi...
  • Ben Sutcliffe Dr Ben Sutcliffe
    In the Drosophila olfactory system around 1300 olfactory receptor neurons transmit sensory information to the antennal lobe where neurons of the same class converge on distinct glomeruli. Projection neuron dendrites innervate these glomeruli in a...
  • Kyle Treiber Dr Kyle Treiber
