  • 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...
  • Dr Keri Carpenter
    Research on human brain chemistry, in brain injury and brain tumour patients. Brain injury is a major cause of disability and death. While some brain injury survivors have good outcomes, others experience varying degrees of disability, which are o...
  • Dr RATNASEKHAR CH
    Life is a cyclical chemical process from birth to death, which consists of developmental changes from single cell to adult and aging changes from adult to death. There are internal circannual cycles, circadian rhythms with in this birth to death ...
  • 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 ...
  • Mr Cameron Hall
    My PhD centres around the investigation of biomarkers of TBI in patients, including protein markers of neuronal/axonal injury and neuroinflammatory response, as well as small-molecule biomarkers. I will study these biomarkers in brain microdialysa...
  • Ibrahim Jalloh Dr Ibrahim Jalloh
    Which fuels are best for the injured brain? Ibrahim is a consultant adult and paediatric neurosurgeon who was awarded a World Federation of Neurosurgical Societies Young Neurosurgeon of the Year award in 2017. His research, supported by the MRC, a...
  • Monica Killen
    My PhD is focused on understanding the relationship between metabolic dysfunction and inflammation in traumatic brain injury (TBI). Many TBI patients experience a change in normal brain chemistry, which causes further neurodegeneration and cell de...
  • Dr Brian Lam
    Functional genomics of the brain control of energy metabolism.
  • Mary McLean Dr Mary McLean
    I perform magnetic resonance imaging and spectroscopy studies on patients with brain tumours (as well as tumours of other parts of the body). The aim is to improve non-invasive diagnosis and the prediction and monitoring of response to treatment. ...
  • 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 ...
  • Dr Luca Peruzzotti-Jametti
    My research focuses on the mechanisms driving chronic CNS damage in conditions of neuroinflammation, such as multiple sclerosis (MS). Currently I am studying how progression works in MS by focusing on the link between immune cell metabolism and ch...
  • Alexa Pohl
    Many psychiatric conditions may have origins in abnormal brain development in utero. It is hypothesized that autism spectrum conditions (ASCs) may be linked to higher levels of testosterone during a critical period of brain 'programming' that occ...
  • Richard Shannon Dr Richard Shannon
    In the neurosurgery laboratory we use analytical techniques such as HPLC, ELISA and Luminex Multiplex to measure levels of chemicals and proteins in brain microdialysate samples. Brain microdialysis is used in the neurocritical care unit (NCCU) to...
  • Anthony Tsang Dr Anthony Tsang
    Along the major research interest of Dr Blouet's group, my current research focus involves characterising amino acid sensing metabolic neural circuits, both anatomically and functionally. However, during my postgraduate studies, I received solid ...
  • 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...
  • Miss Natalie Wallis
    I study the genetics basis of obesity, with focus on neuroendocrine genes. This offers the chance to better understand the mechanisms of appetite control and energy balance in the CNS. My primary model for the genetics of obesity is canine subject...
  • Miss Margaret Westwater
    My primary scientific aim is to examine the interaction between peripheral metabolic signaling and neural activity in individuals with healthy and disordered eating behaviors. This work involves measurement of metabolic functioning (e.g., body com...
  • Yizhou Yu
    My main research focuses on developing potential therapeutic targets for Alzheimer's disease using cell and fly models, in combination with human genetic, biochemical, behavioural and brain imaging data. I am also involved in a collaborative proj...
