Under the auspices of the Professor John Scott fellowship a fully funded 4 year PhD studentship has become available to undertake a collaborative PhD project in the laboratories of Professor Mark Cunningham (Discipline of Physiology, School of Medicine) and Professor Colm Cunningham (School of Biochemistry & Immunology) at Trinity College Dublin.

The PhD project available is entitled, “Decoding neuroinflammatory effects on neuronal circuits at the interface of dementia and delirium”. The project will combine animal models of disease, cell isolation protocols, acute illness protocols and will require a particular focus on electrophysiological approaches to better understand the impact of neuroinflammation on neuronal dynamics.
