DEPRESSION AND DEMENTIA: THE EFFECT OF AMYLOID PATHOLOGY AND THERAPEUTIC INTERVENTIONS ON AFFECTIVE AND COGNITIVE PROCESS IN MICE

My PhD is focused on profiling anhedonia (a core symptom of depression) and cognitive impairment in the Tg2576 mouse model of Alzheimer's disease, determining whether such deficits are treatable, and investigating the biochemistry underlying these disorders.

After gaining an MPharm degree from the Cardiff School of Pharmacy & Pharmaceutical Sciences in 2014, I qualified as a pharmacist following pre-registration training in a hospital in South West England. I then returned to Cardiff in 2015 to undertake PhD studies, based at both the Cardiff Schools of Psychology and Pharmacy & Pharmaceutical Sciences.
