  • Researcher
  • Neurodegenerative Diseases
  • UCL Queen Square Institute of Neurology
  • Faculty of Brain Sciences
  Yazead obtained a BSc in Pharmacology at Newcastle University. After its completion, he became a research assistant at Newcastle University's Institute of Neuroscience and Institute of Aging working on nootropic compounds to reverse cognitive deficits. From there Yazead went on to King's College London for an MSc in Neuroscience and subsequently worked as a research assistant in the Neurodegenerative Diseases Research Centre as a part of the Pharmaceutical Science Research Division to assess cognitive deficits in a novel animal model for Parkinson’s disease. Under the supervision of Profs Duty, Malcangio, and Chaudhuri at the IoPPN Wolfson Centre for age-related diseases, Yazead completed his Ph.D. investigating the neuronal and inflammatory contribution to pain in Parkinson’s disease. Yazead’s first, and current, post-doctoral research associate position is under Prof Tammaryn Lashley at the Queen Square Brain Bank and Dr. Kerstin Sander at the Centre for Radiopharmaceutical Chemistry, funded by the Alzheimer’s Society. Yazead’s project is aimed to investigate the neuroinflammatory role in varying dementias, in particular frontotemporal dementias.

Research Summary
Yazead's current research aims to explore the role of neuroinflammation in frontotemporal lobar degeneration using novel inflammatory radioligands on donated post-mortem samples, single-cell RNA sequencing from FTLD patients, and histological staining and analysis using high-throughput computational methods.
Teaching Summary
Yazead averaged at about 80 hours of teaching a year during his Ph.D. at KCL. This involved tutorial sessions, hands-on lab demonstrations, and lectures to students in the Faculty of Life Sciences & Medicine, Pharmacology, and Neuroscience. He has also supervised MSc students and trained members of his current lab on how to use the quantitative pathology analysis platform, QuPath.
