  Dr G Brennan, Prof D Henshall
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Temporal-lobe epilepsy is a common chronic neurological disorder characterized by spontaneous recurrent seizures. Fever-induced seizures (febrile seizures) are the most common type of seizure in young children and are generally harmless.

  Dr J L Penny, Dr C Demonacos
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

In order to treat diseases associated with the central nervous system (CNS), e.g. cancer, Parkinson’s disease, depression, it is essential for therapeutic drugs to be able to penetrate into the brain.
