Dayne obtained his BSc (Hons) in Biochemistry (with Industry) from the University of Leeds in 2006, before going on to complete my PhD on the relationship between stroke and Alzheimer’s disease (AD). 

In 2015, Dayne joined the University of Oxford as a Parkinson’s UK Career Development Fellow as part of the Richard Wade-Martins’ group. Using human iPSCs as a model and with a focus of electrophysiology and calcium imaging as tools, he identified robust phenotypes relating to synaptic function and energy.

In 2020, Dayne won the prestigious Future Leader Fellowship allowing him to carry out his work on early synaptic health in Parkinson’s disease as a Group Leader based at UK DRI at Cardiff from February 2021.
