Jemma Pitt


DPhil Student

  • MRI Scan Operator

I am a DPhil Student at Oxford University's Department of Psychiatry and Oxford Centre for Human Brain Activity (OHBA) in the Brain and Cognition Lab, supervised by Prof. Kia Nobre, Prof. Mark Woolrich, Prof. Clare Mackay and Dr. Andrew Quinn.

I am currently working on a research study entitled 'New Therapeutics in Alzheimer's Disease' (NTAD), which aims to identify a biomarker set from data using E/MEG modalities that tracks disease change. It is hopeful that it will help develop new ways to measure the effectiveness of future treatments for AD in clinical trials, and help identify the earliest features of AD to understand how it progresses over time. 

I have a particular interest in developing early biomarkers for Alzheimer’s Disease, as I believe this will significantly enhance our understanding of the disease, and the neurodegeneration that occurs. 

I am also a qualified MRI Research Radiographer and provide cover at OHBA and FMRIB. 

Prior to joining Oxford, I completed my BSc (Hons) in Psychology and MSc in NeuroImaging: Methods and Applications at Cardiff University's Brain Research Imaging Centre (CUBRIC).
