VPS35 Parkinson’s UK PhD Studentship


I’m delighted to announce that myself and Eva Kevei here at the University of Reading have been awarded funding for a three year studentship to investigate how mutations in VPS35 cause Parkinson’s disease. The project will involve working with the nematode worm C.elegans, alongside human cell models, to test what happens when a mutation is present. This is a very exciting project (we’ve just had the genetically engineered – using CRISPR – worms delivered to us). If you want to learn more or apply, click on the link below or email either myself ( or Eva ( for more information.
