  • Dr Melissa Andrews
    My research focuses on assessing the localization and transport of ectopically expressed integrins in adult CNS, in order to better target integrins to sites of injury for therapeutic treatment. We have shown that enhancing the regeneration of do...
  • Amanda Barber Dr Amanda Barber
    Retinal ganglion cells (RGCs) convey visual signals from the retina to the brain via their axons that forms the optic nerve and the optic tract. Damage to RGC axons, as a result of injury or diseases such as glaucoma, can result in blindness as ma...
  • 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...
  • James Fawcett Professor James Fawcett
    Axon regeneration in the damaged CNS: Regeneration of axons after CNS damage is blocked by several molecules in the environment and by loss of intrinsic regeneration ability, We modify the environment to make it more permissive and modify axonal ...
  • ILIAS KAZANIS Dr ILIAS KAZANIS
    My research focuses on the regulation of adult brain cytogenesis, especilly on the biology of the subependymal zone neurogenic/gliogenic niche. I am interested in the role of components of the extracellular matrix (ECM/ such as integrins, laminins...
  • Roger Keynes Professor Roger Keynes
    Growth cone repulsion is an important mechanism controlling axon growth. During development it guides axons by excluding them from repulsive regions of the embryo. Following injury to the adult brain it may also block axon regeneration, with major...
  • Dr Elise Laperrousaz
    I interest myself in the axonal regeneration, after a spinal cord injury. In this context, I focus on integrins role in the process of axonal regeneration in both in vitro and in vivo models.
  • Fiona Love
    Adult CNS neurons have marked differences in axon transport compared to their peripheral or developing counterparts. As a result, adult CNS axons often lack the molecular machinery needed to survive and recover from injury or disease. I'm invest...
  • Alisa Molotova MSci, MRes
    The tissue extracellular matrix (ECM) provides the resident progenitor cells with both biochemical and physical cues, which regulate stem cell fate. During ageing the brain ECM is dynamically altered leading to an imbalance in the tissue homeostas...
  • Dr Bart Nieuwenhuis
    Injury to the brain and spinal cord has devastating consequences because adult neurons in the central nervous system (CNS) do not regenerate. Gene therapy is a promising tool to promote axon regeneration. My research makes contributions to the fie...
  • Veselina Petrova Veselina Petrova
    My research focuses on restoring the intrinsic ability of adult CNS neurons to regenerate after spinal cord injury. In particular, I work on advancing the axonal transport of molecules, key to the regenerative process such as integrins.
  • Patrice Smith Professor Patrice Smith
    Promoting regeneration and repair of the damaged CNS, with a particular focus on understanding the contribution of neuronal intrinsic mechanisms in axon regeneration.
