Professor Clare Stanford

Clare graduated in physiology at University College London (UCL). This was followed by postgraduate and postdoctoral research, with Marianne Fillenz at the University of Oxford, investigating neurochemical mechanisms that regulate noradrenergic transmission in the brain and periphery. On moving back to UCL, her interests broadened to include the neurobiology of mood and behaviour, especially in respect of the pharmacology of antidepressants, anti-obesity agents and psychostimulants, all of which target noradrenergic neurones. This work has involved preclinical research in vitro and in vivo, as well as several human studies. She is currently Professor (Emerita) of Translational Neuropharmacology at UCL.
