The Centre for Clinical Brain Sciences (CCBS) was profiled in The Lancet, in an article outlining the structure and research focus of the Centre.
A two day meeting bringing together the Dementia Platform UK Stem Cells network.
This is a great opportunity to hear about current research by some of the College of Medicine & Veterinary Medicine's ESAT Fellows.
A Joint Symposium with the postgraduate students from the University of Tokyo. All welcome - no registration required.
Scientists led by Dr Tilo Kunath (MRC Centre for Regenerative Medicine) have taken a key step towards improving an emerging class of treatments for Parkinson’s disease. The advance could improve a next generation of therapies for the condition, which affects around one in 350 people in the UK.
We have a variety of postgraduate masters courses - research and taught - covering neuroscience-related areas, including distance learning courses. More information about these can be found at the individual programme websites.
Three collaborative pilot project grants have been awarded to foster trans-Atlantic cooperation
Professor Sir Ian Wilmut (The Roslin Institute), lead scientist in the project that created Dolly the Sheep, has announced, on World Parkinson's Disease Day, that he is backing a major new Parkinsons's disease research programme between Dundee and Edinburgh after being diagnosed with the condition.
A team of researchers at the University of Edinburgh's Medical Research Council Centre for Regenerative Medicine (MRC CRM) have made a key discovery that could speed up the production of cells in the lab for studying diseases such as multiple sclerosis and Parkinson’s disease. It is possible that it could also help to boost supplies of cells for use in drug discovery research and could eventually aid production of cells for use as therapies.
Dr David Hay, Dr Baltasar Lucendo-Villarin, Jose Meseguer-Ripolles and Dr Kate Cameron (all MRC Centre for Regenerative Medicine, University of Edinburgh), in collaboration with the Universities of Aberdeen and Glasgow, have developed a stem cell technique to assess the effects of maternal cigarette smoking on the developing foetus. Their findings reveal that the potent cocktail of chemicals in cigarettes is particularly harmful to developing liver cells and affects male and female foetuses differently.
