Dr Carole Torsney (Centre for Discovery Brain Sciences), Dr Lesley Colvin (Critical Care and Pain Medicine) and colleagues at the Univeristy of Aberdeen have published a study indicating that melatonin (often used to treat jet lag) may help reduce the neuropathic pain that is experienced by almost 70% of patients undergoing chemotherapy treatment for cancer.
Professor Tom GIllingwater (Centre for Integrative Physiology, and Euan MacDonald Centre for MND Research) has been awarded a grant from MND (Motor Neurone Disease) Scotland for the project titled: 'Identifying and targeting neuroprotective pathways in motor neurons'. Congratulations Tom!
Researchers at the University of Edinburgh (Dr Barry McColl, Laura McCulloch and colleagues - Roslin Institute) have been awarded a £1.3M grant from the Medical Research Council (MRC) to study the immunological mechanisms related to B cell function that are disrupted after stroke and could contribute to stroke-associated infection (SAI).
A new study led by Professor Anna Williams (MRC Centre for Regenerative Medicine) and published in Science Translational Medicine has uncovered a potential approach to treat one of the most common causes of dementia and stroke in older people – small vessel disease (SVD).
Researchers Dr. Chris Henstridge and Dr. Tara Spires-Jones (both Centre for Cognitive and Neural Systems and Euan MacDonald Centre) have published findings suggesting that overactive scavenger cells in the brain may contribute to neurodegeneration.
Professor Tara Spires-Jones (Centre for Discovery Brain Sciences, University of Edinburgh) features throughout the Financial Times' Seasonal Appeal Video for Alzheimer's Research UK.
Professor Joanna Wardlaw (Centre for Clinical Brain Sciences) is currently featured in the Royal College of Physicians 'Women in medicine: a celebration' exhibition. This is an exhibition of specially commissioned photographic portraits honouring contemporary and historical women in medicine.
Professor Joanna Wardlaw (Professor of Applied Neuroimaging and Honorary Consultant Neuroradiologist, University of Edinburgh) has been honoured with the Presidential Award, at the European Stroke Conference, 16-18 May 2017, in Prague. This is fantastic international recognition of Professor Wardlaw's contribution to stroke research - congratulations!
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.
