Fully Funded PhD Studentship: NoMo Diagnostics in collaboration with the Carnegie School of Sport

NoMo Diagnostics and the Carnegie School of Sport are looking to recruit a highly motivated individual to a prestigious PhD. An Evaluation of a Miniaturized Quantitative Electroencephalography (qEEG) system for Pitch-Side Brainwave Monitoring. Read more

Determining brain glycosylation in ageing and Alzheimer’s disease

  Research Group: Pharmacology and Experimental Therapeutics
Increasing age is associated with lower levels of cognitive performance; concomitant with this is a decrease in brain glucose metabolism. Read more

Brain-inspired See-Think-Act Intelligent Machines

  Research Group: School of Computing
There is an ongoing revolution in developing autonomous intelligence machines to greatly improve effectiveness and efficiency of sensory perception, decision-making, and active control. Read more

Evaluation of potential therapeutics in a mouse model of KCNT1-related epilepsy

  Research Group: School of Biomedical Sciences
Human mutations in the KCNT1 gene, which encodes a sodium-activated potassium channel, results in severe and drug-resistant childhood epilepsy. Read more

Cell Biology: Exploring the mitotic functions of ASPM in human brain size regulation

The increase in relative brain size is one of the most striking events in human evolution. To determine how human brain size is normally regulated we have investigated the cause of autosomal recessive primary microcephaly (MCPH), a congenital disorder of reduced brain size and associated mental retardation.

Cancer: 3D model of the brain tumour perivascular niche: developing new approaches to target brain tumours

Aggressive brain tumours have dismal outcomes. Patients with glioblastoma multiforme, or brain metastases arising from tumours in other part of the body such as melanoma and breast cancer, have a median survival of only 14 months when treated with surgery followed by radiation and chemotherapy.

Targeting protein acetylation to reduce microglia activation in neurodegenerative disorders

Recently, inhibitors of histone deacetylase enzymes (HDACs) have been identified as having potential therapeutic value for a range of neuronal disorders including Alzheimer’s disease, dementia and stroke [1, 2]. Read more

Identifying cognitive and biochemical changes underlying lifestyle risk factors for dementia

  Research Group: Pharmacology and Experimental Therapeutics
Dementia describes a group of age-associated conditions of which cognitive decline is a major feature. Alzheimer’s disease (AD) is the most common cause of dementia and is characterised by the onset of a gradual cognitive decline. Read more
