  • Anne Bertolotti Dr Anne Bertolotti
    Diverse neurodegenerative diseases share a common cause: aggregation of a specific protein in selective regions of the brain. The disease-causing proteins are expressed throughout life but neurodegenerative diseases are mostly late-onset. In fac...
  • Clemence Blouet Dr Clemence Blouet
    Impairments in central pathways regulating energy homeostasis can cause profound metabolic dysfunctions, but current knowledge is insufficient to develop safe and efficient therapies targeting these pathways. Brain metabolic sensing is based on th...
  • Mirjana Bozic Dr Mirjana Bozic
    I study language as a cognitive and a neural system. My research focuses on the neural mechanisms that support spoken language comprehension. Using behavioural and neuroimaging techniques, I investigate how different properties of the speech input...
  • Dr Tiago Branco
    Our goal is to understand how the mouse brain implements the computations that underlie innate behaviours. We aim to provide biophysically detailed descriptions of how sensory inputs and motivational states are integrated to produce behavioural ou...
  • Andrea Brand Professor Andrea Brand FRS FMedSci
    Discovering how stem cells are maintained in a multipotent state and how their progeny differentiate into distinct cellular fates is a key step in the therapeutic use of stem cells to repair tissues after damage or disease. We are investigating th...
  • Dennis Bray Dr Dennis Bray
    How do bacteria find distant sources of food, and avoid noxious and potentially damaging environments? We seek answers to these questions by developing computer simulations of swimming bacteria exposed to gradients of different substances. Our pro...
  • Sarah Bray Professor Sarah Bray
    We are interested in understanding the signalling pathways that co-ordinate the decisions made by cells during development. The ultimate fate of a cell is dictated in part by its heredity and in part through interactions with neighbouring cells. O...
