Welcome to Cambridge Neuroscience

Cambridge Neuroscience — connecting multidisciplinary neuroscience research and teaching across the University of Cambridge and affiliated Institutes, with a mission to increase our fundamental understanding of brain function and enhance quality of life

Neuroscience has transformed our understanding of the healthy brain and promises treatments for devastating disorders that affect millions of people. As the search for more effective therapies continues, unravelling the complexities of the brain and mind has become a multi-disciplinary enterprise.

Cambridge Neuroscience exists as a virtual centre of excellence with crosscutting research programmes in thematic areas.
