This pilot study investigated whether chemotherapy associated changes in brain structure and connectivity, underpin symptoms of cognitive impairment (chemo-brain). The pilot study is a good example of cross disciplinary research at BSMS, involving psychologists at SHORE-C, the Clinical Imaging Sciences Centre (Prof Mara Cercignani & Dr Neil Harrison), experts in molecular cell biology at the Trafford Centre (Dr Sandra Sacre), medicine & immunology (Prof Keven Davies), oncology (Prof Peter Schmid) and the clinical breast team (led by consultant surgeon Mr Zammit).
