Skills Development Fellowship Vision
The key to a successful Skills Development Fellowship is highly dependent on the individual, the research project and the skills involved. However, I can say I have a strong track record of developing junior scientists and have trained many people who are now PIs around the world. If you want to work with a Neuroscience professor with an H-index over 50 who is still very much in touch with the lab and how things are done I could be the one for you.

Ongoing Projects & Grants
With various colleagues I currently hold around 10 research grants in various areas of neuroscience and electrophysiology. I am trying to grow advanced cell-level imaging to supplement our well-established electrophysiology capabilities and this is being supported by a Wellcome Trust equipment award. Quite a lot of our current grant funding relates to studies of mouse models of dementia and their neurophysiological consequences. We are also starting to look at CNS vascular function and how it is influenced in disease.
