CANTAB Research Grant 2017 – Results

The 2017 CANTAB Research Grant was once again overwhelmed with applications. All the research proposals received were such high quality it was another impossible task for our funding committee to review and narrow the proposals down. We received applications from across the globe from Hong Kong to Saint Lucia. But there could only be three awards.

MRI research meets Doppler Ultrasound, Cognitive Function and Wellbeing with CANTAB Research Grant

PhD student Claire Burley was one of four winners of our CANTAB Research Grant for 2016. Claire was awarded our UK award for her study titled 'Multi-modal assessment of brain health across the lifespan and between fitness groups. Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) meets Doppler ultrasound, cognitive function and measures of well-being'. Having now completed the majority of her research, Claire tells us more about her research project and how The CANTAB Research Grant has helped.

Evaluating familiarity deficits related to conversion of MCI to Alzheimer’s disease

The early identification of individuals at risk of Alzheimer's Disease (AD) is of primary importance for the development of new effective interventions to stop the progression of the disease before the onset of severe neurodegeneration and clinical manifestations.
