Willingness to take PhD students
Ann Logan's research interests centre on the role of cytokines and growth factors in the scarring and regeneration responses of the injured CNS. She is particularly interested in developing a strategy of gene therapy to promote functional repair and reconstruction of damaged neural pathways in the CNS.
Her current research projects include:
Neurodegeneration and repair of the damaged and diseased central nervous system
Using cellular and molecular techniques to investigate the role of growth factors in the scarring and regeneration responses after brain and spinal cord injury
Developing a strategy of gene therapy to promote functional reconstruction of damaged neural pathways in the damaged CNS
Professor Logan currently supervises six doctoral researchers and welcome applications from enthusiastic students who have an interest in her areas of specialism.
