In our latest Interviews with Scientists, we talked to Stuart Maudsley! Stuart is the Group Leader of the Translational Neurobiology Group and Adjunct Department Director of the VIB Center for Molecular Neurology at the University of Antwerp. His research focuses on the age-dependent changes in receptor pharmacology associated with neurodegenerative conditions such as Alzheimer’s disease and Frontotemporal dementia. Find out what Stuart had to say!
Next in our Interviews with Scientists series, we speak to Dr Laura Boddington. Laura is currently working as a Postdoctoral Researcher at the University of Oregon looking at using peripheral nerve stimulation to modulate learning and performance.
Next up in our Interviews with Scientists, meet Chloe Thomas! Chloe is a final year PhD student researching cell death mechanisms in retinal ganglion cells after traumatic eye injury. She is currently based in the Neuroscience and Ophthalmology group at the University of Birmingham in the UK.
We spoke to Chloe about her research, her advice for new PhDs, as well as her recent experience speaking at ARVO 2018 in Hawaii, which was her first time speaking at an international conference.
Lizzie Mann did her undergraduate degree in Pharmacology at the University of Bath, and is now working hard on finding a neuroprotective therapy for Parkinson’s disease in Susan Duty’s lab at King’s College London. She loves to talk about science and can often be found trying to get undergraduates, postgraduates and anyone else who will listen, excited about research.

Rachelle Balez is a PhD student at the Illawarra Health and Medical Research Institute, whose work focuses on understanding Alzheimer’s disease by generating brain cells from patient skin cells. She is passionate about equality in STEM and has recently returned from Antarctica with the Homeward Bound women in science leadership initiative. Read more about her fascinating work...
In our next Interviews with Scientists, meet James Quinn! James is a final year PhD student studying the proteolytic cleavage of tau in different types of dementia at the University of Manchester in The Hooper Lab.
Catriona is a final year PhD student on the EPSRC & MRC Centre for Doctoral Training (CDT) in Regenerative Medicine programme at the University of Manchester. We spoke to Catriona all about her work for this latest post in our Interviews with Scientists series.
Agnese Solari is a final year PhD student working on cancer stem cells in human primary brain tumors like glioblastoma and meningioma at the Pharmacology Lab of Professors Barbieri and Florio, in the Experimental Neuroscience Dept at the University of Genova.
We spoke to Agnese all about her work, her interests, and what a typical day in the lab looks like for her.
Dr Samantha Murray is a researcher at the University of Otago, studying gene therapy in a model of Batten disease. We talked to her to find out more about her life, and her research...
We’re delighted to introduce Erica Brady next in our Interviews with Scientists series! Erica is currently doing a PhD at the University of Exeter, looking at how interneurons are contributing to the circuit disruptions seen in Alzheimer’s disease.
