PhD opportunity to investigate the role of Tau in synaptic architecture and function

Posted by on January 6th, 2021

We live in an ageing society with high incidence of cognitive, sensory and motor decline, as well as neurodegenerative diseases such as Alzheimer’s disease (AD) or Fronto-temporal Dementia (FTD). Although decay of synaptic functions is a clear hallmark of the aforementioned conditions, we know too little about the underlying causes. The overarching aim of this[…]

Mechanisms of synapse loss during neurodegeneration and ageing

Posted by on December 4th, 2020 Exciting PhD project supervised by Dr Sanchez-Soriano and Dr Alison Twelvetrees through the MRC DiMeN Doctoral Training Partnership on mechanisms of synapse loss during neurodegeneration and ageing.   The aim of this studentship is to understand the processes of ageing and neurodegeneration, through the study of mechanisms of synaptic loss. You will be part[…]
