About the Institute
The Institute of Neurology was established in 1950,
merged with UCL in 1997, and is a key component of the Faculty of Brain Sciences at UCL. The Institute has eight academic Departments, which encompass clinical and basic research within each theme. In parallel, there are currently six Divisions representing professional affiliations.
The mission is to translate neuroscience discovery research into treatments for patients with neurological diseases.
The UCL Institute of Neurology has a significant postgraduate teaching and training portfolio, with nearly 500 graduate students at Queen Square. The Institute employs over 600 staff, occupies some 12,000 sq m of laboratory, lecture room and office space, and has a current annual turnover of £75m.
The Faculty of Brain Sciences website also has videos of some of our researchers talking about their research.
