Neuroscience at Bristol

School Of Medical Sciences Bristol

Bristol University is home to a large and diverse neuroscience community. Bristol Neuroscience (BN), a virtual institute was established in 2003, in order to co-ordinate research and clinical neuroscience both in the University and - via the Institute of Clinical Neurosciences - local NHS hospitals. There are approximately 170 investigators associated with BN with interests extending from basic biomedical research to clinical human-based studies, and from molecular and cellular neuroscience through to animal behaviour, epidemiology and human psychology. There are multiple formal and informal collaborations between members of the neuroscience community at Bristol and substantial funding comes from a wide range of sources including national, international and industrial.
