The Chancellor Award for Excellence in Teaching

We are delighted to report that our colleague, Dr Angus Brown, has been awarded the Chancellor Award, which recognises quality in teaching.

Angus came to the School some 10 years ago as a Senior Lecturer in the MRC Applied Neuroscience Group.  He then joined the Neuroscience Teaching Group in 2007 as Associate Professor in Neuroscience.

Angus teaches undergraduate Neuroscience students and Medical students.  He is module convenor for the Introduction to Neuroscience module taken by 1st year Neuroscience students, the Neuroglial Cells in Nervous System Function and Disease taken by final year Neuroscience students, Clinical Applications of Current Neuroglia Research taken by 3rd year medical students, and co-ordinates the Final Year Neuroscience student projects.  He also contributes to teaching on the Skills in Neuroscience and Computational Neuroscience and Neuroinformatics modules taken by 2nd year Neuroscience students, and the Functional and Behavioural Neuroscience module taken by 2nd year Medical students. 

As well as teaching and academic administration, Angus continues his research into the role of glycogen in the nervous system.  Angus is also involved in the professional development of postdoctoral researchers in the School and the Faculty of Medicine and Health Sciences.
