Please join us in congratulating Dr Jack Humphrey, MRC Clinical Neuroscience PhD student, for successfully passing his viva on 14 December. His project was jointly supervised by Dr Vincent Plagnol from the UCL Genetics Institute, Professor Adrian Isaacs, and Dr Pietro Fratta, both at the UCL Institute of Neurology.

His thesis "RNA dysregulation in models of frontotemporal dementia and amyotrophic lateral sclerosis" was examined by Professor Marc-David Ruepp from Kings College London and Professor Jernej Ule from the Francis Crick Institute.

Jack's next destination is a postdoctoral position with Dr Towfique Raj at the Mount Sinai School of Medicine in New York City. We wish Jack all the best on his next adventure!
