Thesis title: Electron cryo-tomography of human induced pluripotent stem cell (iPSC)-derived neurons to study structural changes in Alzheimer’s disease

Primary theme: Structural Biology

University: University College London

University supervisors: Professor Selina Wray and Dr Charles Arber

Franklin supervisor(s): Dr Michael Grange, Professor Shabaz Mohammed, Dr Michele Darrow

Bronwen completed a BSc in Biology at the University of Sussex followed by an MSc in Neuroscience at King’s College London. Her PhD project uses iPSC-derived neurons to model Alzheimer’s disease specific structural changes in the endosomal lysosomal system through the use of electron cryo-tomography.
