The Autonomic Neuroscience Centre was informally established in 1995 under the direction of Professor Geoffrey Burnstock, from the Department of Anatomy and Developmental Biology, UCL and Professor Mike Spyer from the Department of Physiology, UCL and Royal Free Hospital School of Medicine. (Scientific Advisory Board).

Ove Overview
The Autonomic Neuroscience Centre is unique in its approach in bringing together a range of skills and technologies, fostering the exchange of knowledge between scientists. It is comprised of physiologists, histochemists, biochemists, molecular biologists, pharmacologists, biophysicists, cell biologists, and clinicians.
The Autonomic Neuroscience Centre fosters inter-disciplinary interaction
    • linking research into central and peripheral mechanisms responsible for autonomic control applying basic science to problems in clinical medicine
    • bridging academia and industry
The Autonomic Neuroscience Centre promotes multi-disciplinary research into the autonomic nervous system and autonomic control, while establishing a major training centre for the development of the next generation of autonomic investigators. This multi-disciplinary environment is involved in broad spectrum investigations including urogenital, cardio-vascular, gastrointestinal, renal, respiratory, obstetric and gynaecological research.
