Five Parkinson’s and Alzheimer’s researchers from Richard Wade-Martins, lab (The WadeRunners), took part in the Vertical Rush challenge in aid of Shelter on March 15th, 2018.
Rebecca Wallings, Deepak Kumar, Charmaine Lang, Peter Kilfeather and Bryan Ng climbed the 42 floors (932 steps), and joined 1000 runners taking on the challenge to raise funds for Shelter. 
150 families are made homeless in Britain every day. Shelter’s services are doing all they can to ensure everyone has a place to call home.
The WadeRunners finished 16th out of 56 teams taking part. Pete finished in 5:40, the 6th fastest time of the day. Charmaine (8:21) and Becky (8:23) were in the top 10 ladies in their wave.

Postdoctoral Research

In a new study into the longer-term damage amongst patients recovering from COVID-19, DPAG Research Fellow Dr James Grist of the Tyler Lab has been running a novel scanning technique that shows a dramatic decrease in the ability of the lungs to diffuse gas in to the blood stream after COVID infection. This work may shed light on the problem of breathlessness after COVID infection and help guide us in understanding therapeutic selection and efficacy.

Researchers reveal surprising simplicity behind our ability to hear

Postdoctoral Publication Research Students

A computational modelling study from the King Group demonstrates that the way sounds are transformed from the ear to the brain’s auditory cortex may be simpler than expected. These findings not only highlight the value of computational modelling for determining the principles underlying neural processing, but could also be useful for improving treatments for patients with hearing loss.
