Ben Clennell (OI 2001-11) is working on his PhD at the University of Bristol in Ultrasound Neuromodulation; using ultrasound as a non-invasive method to modulate brain and promote memory function. Previously Ben took his degree in Bio Chemistry and his Masters in Molecular Neuroscience. 

Ben has won the Brainbox 2021 Award which will soon enable him to set up a pilot study. Most of Ben's work so far has been in vitro, cells in a dish experiments and he is now working through the university ethics process to get his study approved with healthy human volunteers. He said, "Millions of people globally are affected by neurological disorders associated with memory disturbance. Human memory is a distributed process with medial temporal regions at its epicentre.'

His winning proposal was chosen by the Brainbox Initiative's' Scientific Committee, comprising of some of the world's leading non-invastive brain stimulation experts.
