The Renaissance Hotel


From The Pianos in the Arcade (Location 4), if you head to the Upper Level of St Pancras Station you will see some world-famous artworks such as Paul Day’s ‘The Meeting Place’ statue, and Tracey Emin’s ‘I want my time with you’ or have a word with John Betjeman’s statue as you pass by.

Next we recommend you take a walk outside under the arch and look right to see the stunning curving redbrick façade of this Gothic Revival hotel.

“Heading North to meet Emma Hodson-Tole”

At this point we are going to whisk you away for a brief virtual trip up north to Manchester via Euston Station.

Let us introduce Dr. Emma Hodson-Tole, who is a Reader in Neuromusculoskeletal Integration at Manchester Metropolitan University (MMU). Emma’s research work involves the development of tools to study human muscle and nerve systems, which can be applied to provide new understanding of healthy function and support diagnosis and monitoring of different nerve and muscle diseases.

An example of Emma’s current work is the development of ultrasound imaging as a non-invasive means of detecting involuntary patterns of muscle activity, for more sensitive diagnosis and monitoring of diseases such as Motor Neurone Disease. Emma has an established track record of developing and delivering a range of public engagement activities, at events such as Manchester Science Festival, which have been supported from sources such as The Physiological Society and recognised with a Public Engagement Champions award from MMU.
