Prestigious European Science Foundation networking grant awarded to Institute of Neurology professor

Publication date:

Congratulations to Professor Xavier Golay (Department of Brain Repair & Rehabilitation), who has been awarded a networking grant from the European Science Foundation COST office, the first grant of this kind awarded to UCL. The prestigious award will be used to support the Arterial Spin Labelling (ASL) Initiative in Dementia (AID) Action network, which aims to coordinate research in this area and optimise the use of facilities already existing in Europe. The network, which runs for four years, held its first networking event with the official Kick-Off Meeting in Brussels in December 2011.

International project to determine vascular contribution to neurodegeneration begins

Publication date:

18 April 2012

Congratulations to UCL Institute of Neurology scientists, Dr David Werring and Professor Nick Fox, who are part of an international team of scientists that has recently been awarded funding from the Centres of Excellence in Neurodegeneration (CoEN) to study how vascular disease contributes to neurodegenerative disease. The project, titled Standards for Determining the Vascular Contribution to Neurodegeneration, aims to create a common, albeit expert set of definitions and terminology to describe neuroimaging findings related to diseases affecting brain small vessels. These diseases, including hypertensive arteriopathy and cerebral amyloid angiopathy, are among the commonest to affect the brain and are key causes of stroke and dementia.
