Science Team

Dr Henry Tu
Senior Scientist

Henry graduated in Biomedical and Pharmaceutical from the University of Reading. His research focuses on the neurodegenerative mechanism of Alzheimer’s disease; this led him to joining Neuro-Bio Ltd as a Postdoctoral researcher, exploring novel approaches to neurodegeneration.


Dr Giovanni Ferrati
Senior Scientist

Giovanni has a master in Neurobiology from the University of Turin in Italy, this was awarded with academic distinction. Additionally, he also has a bachelor in biotechnology from the university of Florence in Italy.



Dr Sergio Rotondo
Senior Scientist

Sergio graduated in Biological Sciences from the University of Cambridge, in which he discovered his interest for cell signalling. His studies focused on the molecular mechanisms underlying degradation pathways and how the cellular protein trafficking might be involved in neurodegenerative conditions and other life-threatening diseases.


Dr Emily Pinkstone
Senior Scientist

Emily has a Master’s in Neuroscience and a PhD in Molecular and Cellular Neuro-Oncology. During this time, she developed a keen interest and love of neuroscientific research, which prompted her to join Neuro-bio as a Neuroscientist.



Bibiana Macedo
Lab Technician

Bibiana graduated in Biotechnology and Nutrition from Federal University of Rio Grande do Sul. She has been supporting genetics, molecular biology and evolutionary biology research since then. Bibiana also has experience in screening DNA for pathogenic variants.


Matthew Passmore
University Industry Placement

Matthew is a 4th year MBio (Biochemistry) student from the University of Warwick with a growing interest in neurodegenerative disorders and Alzheimer’s disease. This has led him to join Neuro-Bio for 12 months, where he can develop his research skills and work on an exciting, novel project in biomarker development.


Riona Fumi
University Industry Placement

Riona is a third year Neuroscience student from the University of Leeds. Her study into neurodegenerative diseases has led her to develop a particular interest into Alzheimer’s Disease. She will be working with Neuro-Bio for a year with the drug discovery team, where she will develop her research and analysis skills.


James Gould
University Industry Placement

James is a third-year student from the University of York currently undertaking a BSc in Biology. Here he has developed a keen interest in neuroscience in particular neurodegenerative disorders prompting him to join Neuro-Bio for 12 months as an intern. Here he is working with the drug discovery team and further developing his research skill.
