Proteomic approaches using mass spectrometric analysis have proved a valuable tool in understanding the molecular pathogenesis of complex disorders such as schizophrenia and ASD.
  Using optogenetics to understand memory retrieval in models relevant to Alzheimer’s disease
  Dr S Wang, Dr K Horsburgh
Application Deadline: 30 June 2019

  Identifying glucose-dependent mechanisms underlying risk factors for Alzheimer’s disease
  Research Group: Pharmacology and Experimental Therapeutics
  Dr R Williamson, Dr S McLean
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Several risk factors for Alzheimer’s disease including diabetes and midlife obesity are age-dependent and have an obvious metabolic component resulting in impaired glucose metabolism.
  Self-association of the Alzheimer’s peptide Aβ on membrane surfaces
  Prof M P Williamson
Applications accepted all year round
