Medical School Building, St Luke's Campus, Magdalen Road, Exeter, EX1 2LU, UK
After completing her BSc Biomedical Sciences (Neuroscience) at the University of Edinburgh (2008), Clare achieved her PhD Neuroscience at the University of Edinburgh (2012). With a focus on synaptic dysfunction in neurodegenerative disease, Clare used electrophysiology, biochemistry, cell biology, and pharmacology to uncover pathways that contribute to synaptic dysfunction in Huntington’s Disease. Clare continued to research the regulation and consequences of synaptic activity during her postdoctoral fellowships at The Salk Institute and University of California San Diego (UCSD) in the USA.
Clare held a Lecturer position at the University of Bristol (2015-2019) where she was co-Director for the MSc in Reproduction and Development and taught across the Undergraduate Biomedical science and professional programmes. Clare joined the University of Exeter in 2019 as a Lecturer in Biomedical Sciences and teaches across the Medical Sciences, BMBS and Neuroscience programmes. Clare has a strong interest in the holistic development of undergraduate students and has enjoyed creating resources designed to enrich fundamental skills, independent thinking and active engagement in the undergraduate learning experience.
