Stephen Carter, PhD


Personal profile


My current role at the University of Manchester is in a honorary capacity. Now based at the University of Cambridge (since December 2018) I continue to collaborate with Manchester researchers within the Division of Neuroscience and Experimental Psychology and Wolfson Molecular Imaging Centre. These researchers primarily include Professor Karl Herholz and Dr Rainer Hinz.


After completing my undergraduate (BSc) and postgraduate (MSc) education in Liverpool, I came to the University of Manchester in 2005 to study for a PhD funded by the Medical Research Council (supervised by Professors Karl Herholz, Matthew Lambon Ralph and Alistair Burns).

After successfully defending my PhD thesis in 2009 I moved to Karolinska Institutet (Stockholm, Sweden) in 2010 where I completed a 3 year postdoc within the Division of Translational Alzheimer Neurobiology (under the supervision of Professor Agneta Nordberg).

In 2013 I returned to the University of Manchester for a 5 year EU FP7 EMIF-AD funded Research Fellowship, which ended in June 2018.
