Two researchers from the School of Environment and Life Sciences (ELS) have recently secured £82,000 worth of funding from Alzheimer’s Research UK.

Dr Gemma Lace Costigan, a neuro degeneration researcher, and Dr Lucy Smyth, an inflammatory lung disease researcher, secured the funding in order to support a PhD studentship.

The study will explore the underlying molecular mechanisms of the second most common form of early-onset dementia, after Alzheimer’s disease, Frontotemporal lobar degeneration (FTLD)

This research has an important significance in society and will also allow Dr Gemma Lace-Costigan to expand her research on a number of Alzheimer’s disease projects.
