Dr. Sinead Savage, Research Lab Manager


Sinead received her BSc in Neuroscience from the University of Glasgow in 2008. During that time, she spent four months working at the Max Planck Institute for Neurobiology, Munich on research in pain and relief learning using the Drosophila melanogaster, under the supervision of Prof Hiromu Tanimoto. After graduating, she started a PhD at Imperial College London (Department of Surgery and Cancer) supervised by Dr Daqing Ma and Professor Mark Johnson. Her PhD work focused on the neuroprotective effects of the noble gas argon in an in vivo model of perinatal hypoxia. Sinead joined the Nanomedicine Lab in December 2015, utilising behavioural studies alongside molecular techniques to assess nanomaterials as therapeutic platforms against neurodegenerative disorders such as Parkinson’s disease. After completing her Postdoctoral position within the group, Sinead has since become Research Lab Manager, continuing her involvement in the research aspects of the day to day running of the Nanomedicine Lab.
