The Research Department of Neurodegenerative Disease is recognised as internationally leading in the study of neurodegenerative diseases causing dementia and related disorders.
About the role
We have an exciting opportunity for a Clinical Research Fellow to work on an early phase clinical trial of a candidate disease modifying therapy in familial and sporadic Alzheimer’s disease. This study will use the Stable Isotope labelling kinetics (SILK) technique to track tau kinetics in vivo. You will have the opportunity to carry out parallel biomarker and basic science research using the SILK technique and will assist with other projects related to the Sigrid Rausing Neurogenetic therapies programme.
You will also join our busy weekly specialist cognitive disorder clinic at the National Hospital for Neurology and Neurosurgery, with a satellite clinic at Darent Valley Hospital in Dartford, Kent.
An honorary contract will be sought from UCLH NHS Foundation Trust, for which a DBS check will be required.
The role is available from 01 June 23 and is funded by the Neurogenetic Therapies Programme at UCL until 31 July 2024 in the first instance, with further funding highly likely.
