Dr Phil Weston is an academic neurologist, and joins the Emerging Leader programme under the sponsorship of Prof Nick Fox, Group Leader at the UK DRI at UCL, after being awarded a Clinical Research Career Development Fellowship from the Wellcome Trust. Dr Weston’s lab aims to use cutting-edge brain imaging approaches to better characterize the nature, timing, and anatomical distribution of early changes in the brain in Alzheimer’s disease, during the period before symptoms start.

Prof Siddharthan Chandran, UK DRI Director, said:
"I would like to congratulate our four new Emerging Leaders as they embark on this exciting new challenge. Starting an independent research programme is a major milestone in a scientist's career, but it can be daunting. The Emerging Leader programme provides vital support to researchers as they embark on this significant step. I look forward to following the accomplishments of these researchers as they continue to grow and develop.”
The four new Emerging Leaders join the existing cohort to make a total of 14 researchers currently in the programme. Read more about the initiative here.
