Neuroscience Research Institute
The Neuroscience Research Institute brings together researchers from science, engineering and medicine backgrounds to produce high-quality collaborative research in the area of neuroscience. Our aim is a seamless integration of bench-to-bedside research that will involve a free-flowing interchange between basic and clinical studies.
Greater Manchester and the North West region has the highest incidence of neurological and vascular diseases in the UK. Therefore, the international expertise of the Institute makes Manchester a premier player in the clinical application of neuroscience research.
The Institute focuses on several research areas and from these some research groups have emerged, including Computational Neuroscience, Brain Periphery and Pain, and Developmental Psychopathology.
