  • Dwaipayan Adhya Dr Deep Adhya
    We have recently shown that the in-vitro neural tube structure, the ‘neural rosette’ is affected in autism induced pluripotent stem cell (iPSC) derived neurons. This suggests that an autism diagnosis has genetic and epigenetic influences affecting...

  • 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...
  • 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,...
  • Miss Rebecca Dowden MSci (Hons)
    I work in the Stroke Research Group, Department of Clinical Neuroscience at the University of Cambridge. My role includes the coordination and monitoring of the DNA Lacunar 2 study that investigates the genetics of lacunar stroke.
  • Chaitanya Erady
    Transcriptomic analysis of an inflamed subgroup of major depressive disorder (MDD) patients.
  • Dr Claire Eschbach
    In insect, the mushroom body (MB) is a brain region where memory traces are formed. Recently, EM-based reconstruction of all the input and output neurons of this structure unravelled both the highly recurrent innervation of the MB and its connecti...
  • 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 ...
  • Professor Gordon Harold
    My primary research interests focus on (1) examining the interplay between family relationship dynamics and child-adolescent mental health, (2) understanding the interplay between genetic factors, pre-natal, post-natal environmental factors and ch...
  • 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...
  • 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...
  • Tess Smith
