Mr Brett Adey

Research Assistant


For my undergraduate degree, I studied Experimental Psychology at the University of Bristol, completing a Wellcome Trust vacation project and dissertation focused on human locomotion. In 2019, I completed my master’s degree in Genes, Environment, and Development in Psychology and Psychiatry at the SGDP Centre, King’s College London, undertaking a research project using next-generation sequencing data of ALS patients. Following this, I joined the NIHR BioResource team as a research assistant, where I work on the maintenance, development and recruitment of GLAD, EDGI, and COPING studies.
