Research overview

Juan Varela studied physics in Uruguay and did his PhD in Ireland at the Centre for Bio-Nano Interactions, University College Dublin. He subsequently did a postdoc at the Interdisciplinary Institute for Neurosciences in Bordeaux (France), and a second postdoc in neurodegeneration at the Department of Chemistry at the University of Cambridge (UK). Juan has recently established his research group at the University of St Andrews funded by a European Research Council Starting Grant. His main research interests are the use of nanotechnology and high resolution microscopy to understand and cure neurodegenerative diseases.

PhD and Postdoctoral positions will be available soon. For informal enquiries email Dr. Varela at: jv32@st-andrews.ac.uk

We are happy to support applications for personal fellowships as well.
