Congratulations to Dr Tom MacGillivray, Prof Craig Ritchie, Prof Bal Dhillon and Dr Graciela Muniz Terrera, in the Centre for Clinical Brain Sciences, for being among the first group of researchers to receive funding from the Alzheimer's Drug Discovery Foundation through its Diagnostics Accelerator.
Congratulations to Prof Rustam Al-Shahi Salman (Centre for Clinical Brain Sciences) and colleagues who have recently published two studies published in The Lancet and The Lancet Neurology, indicating that people who suffer a brain haemorrhage can take common medicines without raising their risk of another stroke.
Congratulations to Prof Peter Kind (Centre for Discovery Brain Sciences) and colleagues who have recently published a study in Science Translational Medicine, showing that children with an inherited form of intellectual disability and autism could be helped by a medicine called lovastatin, commonly used to lower cholesterol, if used early in life.
Prof Mark Evans (Centre for Discovery Brain Sciences) and colleagues have published a study investigating cellular processes in the body, indicating that cells can rapidly rewire their communication networks to change their behaviour.
