Institute of Behavioural and Neural Sciences Presentation

Ying gave a great talk at the recent IBANs symposium here in St Andrews. IBANs is an interdisciplinary community of researchers who study the behaviour of human beings and other animals from cellular, neural, cognitive and evolutionary perspectives. It brings together faculty members, research staff and students from the Schools of Biology, Psychology & Neuroscience, Medicine and Chemistry, with the aim of fostering progress at interfaces of the behavioural and neural sciences.

Funded PhD opportunity

We are looking for applicants for an exciting new PhD project investigating the physiology of adult human and rodent sensory neurons (Dorsal Root Ganglion neurons) with the goal of establishing new models for studying pain processing and aiding development of pain therapies. This project is being conducted in Dr Gareth Miles’ lab in collaboration with us here in the Doherty lab, researchers in Glasgow, and an industrial partner based in the Cambridge area, Metrion Biosciences.

ARUK Conference – Aberdeen

13th-15th March was ARUK’s national conference and this year it was held in Aberdeen – nice to see this come to Scotland. Alison gave a presentation on the juniour researcher’s day and Alison, Ying and Mizuki all presented posters
