The Faculty of Medicine and Dentistry has been presented with £745,715 by the James Tudor Foundation to support five major projects.
- Professor Anthony Hollander’s work on creating adult stem cell lines for the treatment of orthopaedic disease;
- Dr Maeve Caldwell’s research into stem cells for possible treatment of Parkinson’s disease;
- Professor Peter Fleming’s study of respiratory muscle endurance in children with neuromuscular conditions;
- Professor Seth Love’s research into the role of neprilysin (an enzyme) in Alzheimer’s disease;

The Trustees of the James Tudor Foundation visited the University recently to meet the researchers concerned. They were also invited to sign the Roll of Benefactors, the University’s highest recognition of charitable giving.
