The potential of circulating diagnostic and prognostic biomarkers in neurodegenerative and neuromuscular diseases

  Research Group: Medicine
Age-associated neurodegenerative diseases, including dementias, such as Alzheimer’s disease (AD) and Frontotemporal dementia (FTD), and clinically overlapping conditions such as Parkinson’s Disease (PD) and Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS), are increasing, in line with the aging worldwide population1.

From biomechanics of football heading to brain tissue biophysics

There is growing public concerns and anxieties around the consequences of exposure to impact from football heading. It is partly fuelled by recognition of increased risk of development of neurodegenerative disease in late life of former players. Read more

Investigating the oligogenic model of Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS; motor neuron disease, MND)

  Research Group: Neuroscience
Applications are invited for a multidisciplinary PhD studentship funded by the Motor Neurone Disease Association to study the cumulative contribution of coinherited subthreshold amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) risk gene variants in the development of cellular hallmarks of ALS pathology.

PhD Studentship in Motor Neuron Disease – Using a Primate Model to Test Novel Therapies

Overview. Interested in neurodegenerative disorders? This PhD project will use a new primate model of motor neuron disease (MND) to explore disease mechanisms and test novel therapies and biomarkers of disease progression. Read more

Deep Learning-based Characterisation of Protein Aggregation in amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS)

Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) is a rapidly debilitating neurodegenerative disease that affects motor neurons [1]. Patients develop progressive muscle weakness, leading to death due to respiratory failure, which typically occurs after 3–5 years of symptom onset. Read more

Manipulation of genome damage responses to promote neuro-regeneration.

The extremely limited regenerative capacity of injured central nervous system axons leads to permanent functional neurological deficits after optic nerve, spinal cord and brain injury and is also the underlying cause of many untreatable human neurodegenerative phenotypes such as Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s diseases.
