  • Professor Ozgur B. Akan
    Our research interests are Internet of Everything, Internet of Bio-Nano Things, Neural Communication, Molecular Communication, Signal Processing and Information Theory. We are particularly interested in developing nanomaterial-based neuro-interfac...
  • Michael Bate Professor Michael Bate
    My research is concerned with the way in which the machinery underlying coordinated movement is genetically specified and assembled during embryonic development. On the one hand this involves an analysis of the way in which muscles are assembled, ...
  • Dr Marco Brancaccio
    Molecular, cellular and circuit mechanisms of circadian rhythms generation in mammals
  • Paul Brooks
    My area of research focuses on how the cellular skeleton is formed and maintained. Fundamentally, microtubules are comprised of just 3 proteins, however, their functions are diverse. During cell division MTs lock onto and pull apart chromosomes, ...
  • Malcolm Burrows Professor Malcolm Burrows
    I work on the properties of neurons and the circuits they form to understand how they control behaviour. 1. Motor control. How do nonspiking local interneurons organise motor neurons to generate limb movements? How do spiking interneurons proce...
  • Dr Marta Costa
    I am the Project Team Leader for the Drosophila Connectomics group, started in October 2016, aims to build the adult olfactory connectome of Drosophila. That is, to describe every neuron that is involved in olfactory behaviour, and its connection...
  • 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,...
  • Richard Eva Dr Richard Eva
    Investigating the neuron-intrinsic mechanisms regulating axon regeneration in the central nervous system, in order to develop treatments for repairing damage caused by disease or injury. As CNS neurons develop, they lose their intrinsic capacity f...
  • 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...
  • Johannes Friedrich Dr Johannes Friedrich
    My research lies at the intersection of computational neuroscience and machine learning, targeting the general question of how statistics can help us decipher neural computation. Most of my work centered on decision making, in particular on implem...
  • Professor Liliana Galindo MD PhD
    I am a psychiatrist; my PhD was in neuroimaging in psychosis (UAB). I am a Professor Ad Honorem of the Pontificia Universidad Javeriana of Colombia. I am interested in translational research in psychiatry, especially in psychosis, and in novel psy...
  • Berthold Hedwig Dr Berthold Hedwig
    I analyse the neural mechanisms underlying acoustic communication in insects which use species-specific sounds for mate attraction. I use behavioural, neurophysiological and optical imaging techniques with the aim to understand: 1. The neural mech...
  • Susan Jones Dr Susan Jones
    The primary focus of our research is the function of AMPA and NMDA glutamate receptors at excitatory synapses in the brain. We study the properties of glutamate receptors, glutamatergic synaptic transmission, and synaptic plasticity. We are intere...
  • Andras Lakatos Dr Andras Lakatos
    Andras’s MRC funded lab focuses on regulators of signaling/transcriptomic networks underlying astrocyte-neuron-synapse interactions in health and in disease. Our specific questions are what cues trigger or maintain the neuroprotective or detriment...
  • Dr Alekhya Mandali
    I am an engineer turned computational neuroscientist with a research focus on building mathematical models and applying computational techniques to study the pathophysiology of various neurological and psychiatric conditions such as Parkinson's di...
  • Dr Federica Marinaro
    Federica Marinaro currently works at the Gurdon Institute, University of Cambridge. Federica does research in Neuroscience. Her current focus is on studying Alzheimer's disease dynamics in human brain.
  • Aicha  Massrali Aicha Massrali
    I am studying atypical neuronal development in the autism brain using patient-derived induced pluripotent stem cell (iPSC). The use of iPSC combined with genome editing technologies allows me to investigate the role of an autism high risk gene (Ne...
  • 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...
  • Dr Paul Morris
    I study the mechanisms of neuronal and network behaviour, focusing on receptors and ion channels. Following my PhD in NMDA receptor function and regulation in midbrain dopaminergic neurons at Cambridge (under Dr. Sue Jones), I worked at the Unive...
  • Cahir O'Kane Dr Cahir O'Kane
    We are interested in the basic biology of axonal ER, and its relevance to neurodegenerative disease, using Drosophila as a model. Axonal ER forms a continuous tubular network throughout the neuron, comparable to a “neuron within a neuron”, potenti...
  • Anna Philpott Professor Anna Philpott
    Our laboratory is interested in understanding the coordination of cell proliferation with cell fate determination and differentiation in development, stem cells and reprogramming, focusing particularly on the nervous system (as well as in endocri...
  • Hugh Robinson Dr Hugh Robinson
    We study synaptic integration in mammalian cortical neurons - encoding of synaptic inputs into patterns of action potentials, or spikes. We are currently interested in - development of advanced electrical stimulation techniques (conductan...
  • Christof Schwiening Dr Christof Schwiening
    Electrical activity of neurones is associated with calcium influx through various channels. Most neurones extrude this calcium very rapidly on the plasma-membrane calcium pump (PMCA). Our research shows that this extrusion occurs in exchange for h...
  • Miss Ilkem Sevgili
    I am currently working on Spiral Ganglion Neurons-on-a-chip and Stria Vascularis cells-on-a-chip projects. In Spiral Ganglion Neurons-on-a-chip project, I aim to grow Spiral Ganglion Neurons (SGNs) onto the 3D printed structures with embedded sen...
  • Dr Toshiaki Shigeoka
    RNA transport and local translation play key roles in the formation and function of neural network. Recent in vitro studies provide evidence that the local translation in axon is critical for the axon pathfinding during development. However, becau...
  • 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...
  • Alex Whitworth Dr Alex Whitworth
    My lab is interested in understanding the mechanisms of mitochondrial homeostasis in relation to neurodegenerative diseases such as Parkinson's disease and motor neuron disease. We use a combination of the powerful genetic techniques of Drosophila...
  • Temur Yunusov Dr Temur Yunusov
    Locomotion in Drosophila melanogaster larva requires coordinated output of motorneurons that drive the contractions of the body wall muscles. The dendrites of motorneurons in the Ventral Nerve Cord are oganised to form a 'myotopic' representation ...
