Jordan Ramsey, a PhD student in this department, recently presented a paper at Gender Summit 4 - Europe 2014, From Ideas to Markets: Excellence in mainstreaming gender into research, innovation, and policy. This was held in Brussels, 30 June - 1 July 2014.

Jordan is now in the final year of her PhD in Prof Sabine Bahn's laboratory at the Cambridge Centre for Neuropsychiatric Research. Her research has focused on analyzing and interpreting sex differences in proteomic serum and post-mortem brain tissue data for schizophrenia, bipolar disorder, major depression and anxiety disorder, and Asperger syndrome. This work has identified  sex-specific molecular signatures for these psychiatric conditions that may reflect clinical differences between men and women in the prevalence, age at onset, course and progression, and response to treatment of these conditions.

Jordan spoke on: Use and Validity of Biomarkers for Females and Males: Application in Asperger’s in a Plenary Session on Understanding Effects and Interactions between Sexual Dimorphism, Gender and Environment.
