Dr Maria Chatzopoulou
PDRA; working in the team of medicinal chemists whose aims are to identify new treatments for Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy (DMD), by discovering and optimising novel small molecule modulators of utrophin, an important protein for the stabilisation of muscle degeneration.

Dr Daniel Conole

Dr Laia Josa-Culleré
PDRA medicinal chemist; working to identify a new class of drugs that will differentiate 'cancer stem-like cells' (CSLCs) to more benign states that will improve clinical outcomes and overcome resistance/relapse.

Dr Julie Davies
PDRA neurobiologist; studying new class of drugs that will stimulate de novo neuron production from neural stem cells that will compensate for disease pathology in neurodegenerative diseases, such as Parkinson's disease, and restore cognitive function.

Dr Laurence Silpa
PDRA medicinal chemist; working on the development of chemical tools to promote induced pluripotent stem cell self renewal.

Aini Vuorinen
D.Phil. Student; working on mechanistic investigations into small molecule modulators of utrophin for DMD therapy, funded by the Muscular Dystrophy Campaign.

Isabel Wilkinson
DPhil Student; working on mechanistic investigations into small molecule modulators of utrophin for DMD therapy.
