Dr Sara Garcia Ratés Senior Neurobiologist
Dr Garcia Ratés has a PhD in Research, Development and Drug Control from the University of Barcelona with her thesis "Interaction of the amphetamine derivates with the nicotinic receptors: Molecular and functional aspects". Her interest in non-traditional properties of the nicotinic receptor attracted her to a position at the Department of Pharmacology, Oxford University as a Postdoctoral Researcher with Baroness Greenfield, exploring novel approaches to neurodegeneration. This group has published extensively on non-traditional actions of acetylcholinesterase (AchE) focusing on a novel theory on non-traditional actions of an 'AChE-peptide' and the interaction with an alternative or allosteric site of the α7-nAChR. Sara's project was concerned with a therapeutic strategy to characterise binding of the peptide to the receptor site to arrest further cell loss and intercept its further action to find a possible novel and effective candidate to cure Alzheimer's and other neurodegenerative diseases.

Mr Scott Badin Pharmacologist
Scott Badin holds a BSc (H) in Biological Sciences (Pharmacology) from The University of Edinburgh, and is now finishing a PhD in neuropharmacology at The University of Oxford. He is the pharmacologist expert of the group and focuses his research on use of electrophysiology and voltage-sensitive dye imaging (VSDI) in order to monitor cortical activity at the meso-scale of brain organisation at physiologically-relevant spatio-temporal resolution (of millisecond and micrometers). Mr. Badin's first publication investigated the acute bioactivity of acetylcholine esterase-related peptides on in vitro cortical networks and validated the use of such on-line recording techniques as an adequate screening tool for probing the bioactivity and efficacy of drugs.

Mr Paul Morrill Biochemistry
Mr. Paul Morrill holds a BSc (H) in Biology from The University of Southampton where he specialised in cellular and molecular biology. His primary role is conducting immunological and biochemical investigative research of the Neuro-Bio theory. Mr Morrill is responsible for sample analysis as a proof of concept of the Neuro-Bio theory and its characteristics in development, and moreover the analysis of acetylcholinesterase-related peptide biomarkers in clinical samples. His current projects focus on immuno-detection of peptides using ELISA and Western-blot techniques.
