Hannah Clarke PhD

About me

Hannah Clarke received a degree in neuroscience from the University of Wales, Cardiff, and her PhD in the neurochemical control of prefrontal function in the marmoset monkey from the University of Cambridge under the supervision of Trevor Robbins and Angela Roberts in the Department of Experimental Psychology. She remained in Cambridge for postdoctoral training where she held a Research Fellowship from Newnham College, Cambridge. She moved to the Department of Physiology, Development and Neuroscience, where she held an MRC Career Development Award, and expanded her studies to the neurochemical regulation of psychiatric symptomatology in hippocampal-prefrontal circuitry with an emphasis on depression and schizophrenia. She was appointed University Lecturer in Neuroscience in the same department and is currently funded by the MRC to investigate the role of perineuronal nets in schizophrenia.
