Malcolm Proudfoot has this week been awarded a Research Training Fellowship by the Wellcome Trust. Malcolm is a trainee neurologist now focusing on clinical research of motor neuron disease. His DPhil study was supported for the first year by an Entry Scholarship from the Guarantors of Brain, during which time his study has investigated the cortical basis for MND related failures in performance of a motor task incorporating temporally cued preparation. Under the supervision of Martin Turner and Kia Nobre he will spend the next two years expanding this study to refine the MEG investigation of these pathophysiological abnormalities and initiate a parallel study of pre symptomatic gene carriers using motor and resting state fMRI at FMRIB. This competitive fellowship supports training through high-quality research and the award is testimony to the quality of translational research at OHBA.
