Neuroscience, Physiology and Pharmacology

The Research Department of Neuroscience, Physiology and Pharmacology (NPP) includes the majority of UCL's basic neuroscience community, with broad interests in the nervous system structure-function and signalling. The range of expertise is vast, spanning molecular, structural and cellular neuroscience through to systems neuroscience, including aspects of translational research, such as pain. The department has an outstanding world-leading reputation for research, being ranked the highest in its sector (RAE 2008). The grant income is about £11 million each year, with many collaborations established within UCL, in the UK and worldwide, as well as with industry. The outstanding academic reputation and broad range of links with other universities and companies are a strong support for our postgraduate students’ networking and employment prospects.
