Our aim is to understand the nervous system in health and disease in order to develop new treatments for incurable neurological disorders. Embedded within Cambridge University Hospitals, our research questions stem from problems we have encountered in the clinic, and directly addresses the needs of patients and families. Our research is ordered in a number of related and corresponding themes and works with a number of major research centres. This research is directly supported by a number of cross-cutting capabilities working in support of patients at our advanced medical facilities. This holistic approach ensures that we are taking big strides towards our research goals, more details of which can be found below in the research themes pages.
