This is an historical archive of the activities of the MRC Anatomical Neuropharmacology Unit (MRC ANU) that operated at the University of Oxford from 1985 until March 2015. The MRC ANU established a reputation for world-leading research on the brain, for training new generations of scientists, and for engaging the general public in neuroscience. The successes of the MRC ANU are now built upon at the MRC Brain Network Dynamics Unit at the University of Oxford.

Ruth Faram successfully defends her thesis

Our Congratulations go to Ruth, who successfully defended her thesis entitled “A Molecular, Anatomical and Developmental Account of Copine -6 Protein Expression in the Rodent Brain” yesterday. Her examiners were Dr Nicoletta Tekki-Kessaris (Reader in Developmental Neuroscience, UCL) and Prof Zoltan Molnar (Prof. of Developmental Neuroscience, University of Oxford). Ruth is pictured outside the Anatomical Neuropharmacology Unit with her examiners, her supervisor Jeff McIlhinney and the Unit Director Prof Peter Somogyi.
