Dr. Mark Jeremy Hunt received his PhD from the Dept. Pharmacology, University of Cambridge (Trinity College), researching Huntington's disease. Currently, he leads a research team at the Nencki Institute, Polish Academy of Sciences, researching the effects of ketamine on brain activity. The team publish results in international peer-reviewed journals and regularly present their latest findings at conferences.
