We are pleased to announce the latest recipients of our cross-centre postdoctoral awards – a scheme designed to stimulate exciting new academic relationships, and encourage collaboration between researchers across our seven centres. The projects awarded in this round will investigate the mechanisms linking traumatic brain injury and dementia, and the use of stem cells as a model for microglia.
We believe that teamwork is the key to future breakthroughs for people affected by dementia, and one of our strengths as an institute comes from the ability to bring together diverse expertise and create new avenues for dementia research.
The cross-centre programme is one initiative designed to stimulate these collaborations, providing funding to pairs of UK DRI Group Leaders (or associated members) for one postdoctoral researcher over three years, who will share their time between two labs at different UK DRI centres. Those involved in the projects will benefit greatly from the shared expertise of the Group Leaders and access to state-of-art technology and resources.
