Charlotte Lee-Reeves

Research Student


Currently studying:

MSc Clinical Neuroscience – University College London (2015)


I have a strong interest in translational neuroscience and the development of novel therapies for treating neurological disease and trauma.


My research project is to develop an in vitro model of neurodegeneration using engineered neural tissue, which is amenable to the quantitative analysis of neurite length. The aim is to optimise the model so that it is robust and reproducible through testing different neuronal cell sources and neurotoxic compounds.



BSc (Hons) Psychology – University of Westminster (2014)

Graduate member of the British Psychological Society (MBPsS)
