RAD Associate Fellow

University of Edinburgh

Bhuvaneish T Selvaraj is an engineering graduate from Anna University in Tamil Nadu, India. He began his scientific research career with a PhD in neurobiology at University of Wuerzburg, Germany. In 2014, he moved to University of Edinburgh to undertake his post-doctoral research on human stem cell disease modelling of neurodegenerative diseases. In 2020 he was awarded a Chancellor’s fellowship at the University of Edinburgh. He plays a key role in the Race Against Dementia Drug Discovery to Clinical Trial Project, a RAD International Hub initiative bringing together scientists from Edinburgh and Amsterdam.

Dr Selvaraj’s research interest is to decipher mechanisms that lead to vulnerability of neurons in neurodegenerative diseases such as motor neuron disease and frontotemporal dementia using patient derived stem cell models. In addition, his work aims to translate research findings to high-throughput drug screening platforms which enables rapid identification of novel therapeutics.
