Dr Rene Frank awarded Future Leader Fellowship

We congratulate Dr René Frank for the award of a UKRI Future Leaders Fellowship entitled ‘The architecture of Alzheimer’s disease-associated pathology by cryo-electron tomography’, which provides £1.74million over 4 years to support René and his team. The fellowship will bridge length-scales from molecules to the whole brain to identify the in situ structural basis of Alzheimer’s disease. Towards this aim, the Frank group have established novel methods using mouse-genetics and correlative fluorescence and cryo-electron tomography imaging to obtain native 3D molecular landscapes of brain.
