Congratulations to Prof Rustam Al Shahi Salman, Dr Neshika Samarasekera (both Centre for Clinical Brain Sciences) as well as other collaborators from Edinburgh, Manchester and Boston on being awarded a £0.44 million Stroke Association Priority Programme Award for 'Neuro-Inflammation after Cerebral Haemorrhage in Edinburgh’ (NICHE).
The course will provide an overview of research design and methodology from cellular and animal research through to clinical and general population studies.
Organised but the Centre for Dementia Prevention, this 5 day course is a unique opportunity for a cross-disciplinary tour of methodology in the field of Alzheimer’s Disease Research.
The school is designed principally for post-graduate students with an interest in pursuing research in Alzheimer’s Disease, but also open to final year students and medical students undertaking parallel research projects.
Professor Joanna Wardlaw (Centre for Clinical Brain Sciences) and colleagues published an article in Lancet Neurology titled 'Neuroimaging standards for research into small vessel disease and its contribution to ageing and neurodegeneration' in 2013. This paper was foundational in the recently published research from the University of Southern California.
Neurodegenerative disorders, particularly Alzheimer’s disease, represent one of the greatest challenges to the social fabric and health care systems of much of the modern world.
Launch the Cardiovascular Sciences-Neuroscience network. This event will bring together academic and clinical researchers from cardiovascular sciences and neuroscience to highlight work on vascular, inflammatory and metabolic mechanisms of endothelial dysfunction, the links between metabolic disease and brain disorders, and other aspects of brain metabolism.
Professors Joanna Wardlaw (Centre for Clinical Brain Sciences, University of Edinburgh), Karen Horsburgh (Centre for Neuroregeneration, University of Edinburgh) and Rhian Touyz (Institute of Cardiovascular & Medical Sciences, University of Glasgow) are guest editors on the recently released Clinical Science special edition on small vessels, dementia & chronic disease.
Inaugural lecture delivered by Professor Craig Ritchie, Chair of Ageing Psychiatry, University of Edinburgh
The pioneering dementia ‘buddy scheme’ headed by Dr Chris Henstridge (Centre for Discovery Brain Sciences) and co-ordinated by Lilian Kennedy (Social Anthropology) was recently featured on BBC News. The scheme pairs university researchers with people who are living with dementia to enable them to learn from each other.
