Dr. Anna Gray, Research Associate in Graphene Neuroscience and Neuropathology


Anna undertook a BSc honours degree in Neuroscience and Psychology at Keele University before moving to London to complete an MSc in Clinical Neuroscience at UCL Institute of Neurology. Following graduation, Anna worked as a research officer at the Brain and Mind Research Institute, University of Sydney. Upon her return to the UK she undertook a position as a research assistant with the Sobell Department of Motor Neuroscience and Movement Disorders, at UCL Institute of Neurology. Anna then continued her studies within this laboratory by pursuing a PhD with the MRC Centre for Neuromuscular Diseases, under the supervision of Professor Linda Greensmith and Professor Michael Hanna. Her thesis involved the investigation of disease progression, outcome measures and therapeutic intervention in a mouse model of spinal and bulbar muscular atrophy (SBMA). Following completion of her PhD, Anna moved to the University of Manchester as a postdoctoral research associate in neurodegenerative disease in the Stem Cell and Neurotherapies laboratory. Anna joined the Nanomedicine laboratory in October 2016 as a postdoctoral research associate in graphene neuroscience and neuropathology for WorkPackage 5 (Biomedical Technologies) of the Graphene Flagship.
