Research Theme Beyond the Neuron

Dr Sybil Stacpoole

University Position
Clinical Fellow


I am currently a neurology registrar, having completed a PhD working with neural precursor cells derived from human embryonic stem cells. I studied the pathways involved in directing neural precursor cells into oligodendrocytes, and investigated some of the biuological properties of human OPCs and oligodendrocytes in vitro. I have also developed an interest in the role of low, physiological oxygen levels in cell culture.
