Sian Beynon-jones

Senior Lecturer in Sociology, University of York
Siân Beynon-Jones is a Senior Lecturer in Sociology. She discovered sociology via an undergraduate degree in Molecular Genetics, during which she became frustrated with conversations that positioned proteins as the sole agents of social change. After graduating in 2003, she undertook a taught MSc in Science and Technology studies at the University of Edinburgh, which allowed her to pursue her interest in the sociology of scientific and medical knowledge-making. Following this degree she was awarded an ESRC PhD studentship at Edinburgh (2005-2009). Her doctoral research explored how expertise is constructed by Scottish health professionals who are involved in abortion provision, and considered the implications of this for women who seek to end their pregnancies.

Career
Siân first joined the department in 2009 as a Research Fellow, working with Nik Brown on an EU FP7 project concerning the dynamics of policy-making about xenotransplantation. In 2011 she was awarded a three year Wellcome Trust Research Fellowship at York to develop her research around experiences with abortion provision, focussing in particular on the meaning(s) of ‘time’ and ‘timing’ in this context. Siân took up a permanent post in the department in 2014 as an Anniversary Research Lecturer and has continued to explore temporality, law and reproduction through a range of funded research projects.

Silvia Maioli

Senior Research Specialist and Associate professor, Neurobiology, Karolinska Institutet
I am research group leader and Docent (Associate Professor).

I have defended my PhD at the University of Bologna in 2011 and did my postdoc at KI. I have been working within the neuroscience field in relation to Alzheimer’s Disease (AD) since my PhD and my work is based on investigating the mechanisms for risk factors for Alzheimer's Disease focusing on ApoE, cholesterol metabolism and oxysterols.

I have extensive knowledge in the field of mouse behavior and mouse models of neurodegenerative disease and I am Facility Coordinator for the Animal Behavior Core Facility (ABCF) at KI. In addition, I work with different molecular biology techniques.

Research

My research is focused on understanding the biological mechanisms behind risk factors for neurodegenerative diseases like Alzheimer's Disease (AD), with a focus on sex-differences.

Changes in brain cholesterol metabolism occurs in early stages of the disease and are considered important drivers of the neurodegenerative cascades in AD. AD risk factors such as hypercholesterolemia, hypertension, lifestyle, affect brain cholesterol metabolism. I study the role of cholesterol metabolites and transporters in the brain during neurodegenerative processes by using in vitro and in vivo models, as well as human samples. In addition, I am interested in the connection between cholesterol metabolism and sex hormones. Sex hormones, including estrogen and testosterone, originate from cholesterol and promote neuroprotective functions in the brain. Both cholesterol and sex hormones are shaped by genes and the environment (for example medications, diet), serving as potential preventive and therapeutic targets for AD.

Another topic in the lab is multi-medication therapies and related sex-differences. We study the effects of different combinations of drugs commonly used in AD comorbidities using mouse models and human data from different clinical cohorts

El primero de ellos es el estudio de las variedades del español en la prensa, que cuenta ya con varios análisis comparativos de distintos periódicos de habla hispana centrados en diversas cuestiones lingüísticas presentes en este tipo de textos, como por ejemplo, el análisis de determinadas formas verbales y el estudio de las formas de transmisión de la palabra ajena. En este ámbito, ha colaborado en proyectos de reconocido prestigio y ha participado en varios congresos de proyección internacional. El segundo es el estudio del lenguaje periodístico en la prensa decimonónica, principalmente en el espacio de la titulación, si bien su interés abarca cualquier etapa de la historia de la lengua.
