Faculty researchers have raised over £1000 for charity by taking part in the Great Manchester Run. Read the short report below by Rebecca Montacute and Catherine Lawrence. 


Neuroscientists from the Faculty have fundraised over £1,000 for charity by taking part in the Great Manchester Run, the largest 10K race in Europe. The Brain Inflammatory Group studies the role of inflammation in several diseases that affect the brain, particularly stroke and Alzheimer’s disease. PhD students and staff from the group ran to raise money for the Natalie Kate Moss Trust. Natalie was a former student at the University who died tragically, aged 27, from a brain haemorrhage. The Trust was set up in her honor to support research into brain haemorrhage and to support students who have suffered a brain injury.
