Nearly a year on from the first outbreak of COVID-19, we still have a lot to learn about how the virus works and affects our health. In this article Operational Scientist, Iona Pickett, explores our current understanding of the neuropsychological consequences of COVID-19, in particular the impact on cognitive function.
Ciara Molloy recently spoke to us about the impact that receiving one of the three 2020 CANTAB Research Grant prizes will have on her research: ‘The impact of rare copy number variants on cognition: Defining cognitive phenotypes in individuals with CNVs associated with neurodevelopmental and neuropsychiatric disorders.’

The winner of one of the three 2020 CANTAB Research Grant prizes, Dr Amie Hayley, Swinburne University of Technology explains the impact CANTAB will have on her research: Combined dexmedetomidine/ketamine nasal spray for analgesia: a pilot feasibility and efficacy trial.
Dr Simone De Luca recently received the 2020 CANTAB Research Grant primary award for her project: “New ways to assess vascular cognitive impairment and dementia (VCID) in chronic lung disease”. We spoke to her about the impact winning would have on her research.
The results of the 2020 CANTAB Research Grant are in! Once again we were overwhelmed by the quality of applications we received – which made it a tough job for our judging panel to narrow the research proposals down.
The results of the 2019 CANTAB Research Grant are in! Once again we were overwhelmed by the quality of applications we received – which made it a tough job for our judging panel to narrow the research proposals down.
PhD Student Naoise Mac Giollabhui received a CANTAB Research Grant in 2018 for his project: ‘Chronic inflammation as a pathway to cognitive dysfunction in adolescents and young adults with a history of elevated depressive symptoms’. We caught up with Naoise to discuss how the grant will benefit his research.

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.
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.
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.
