Dr Ping Yip

Lecturer in Neuroscience

My current role involves basic research in traumatic brain injury and spinal cord injury. I spend my time between in vivo research and in the laboratory doing histology, molecular biology and cell culture. Apart from carrying out research within my own interest, I’m also involved in the supervision of the research carried out by undergraduate, postgraduate and PhD students.  Furthermore, I’m involved in teaching neuroscience to medical, BSc and MSc students from Queen Mary University of London.


Provide lecturers and tutorials in neuroscience to medical students and students studying Intercalated BSc Neuroscience and MSc in Neuroscience and Translational Medicine.

Research interests

I have several research interests which include neuroregeneration, neuroplasticity and neuroprotection and the role of microglia in neurotrauma. I am also involved in a collaborative clinical study in the identification of biomarkers in newborn with brain injury.
