About the Faculty
UCL Faculty of Brain Sciences was established on 1st August 2011 as part of the restructuring of the UCL School of Life and Medical Sciences. Since then, it has gone from strength to strength.
The Faculty brings together our expertise in psychology, psychiatry, prion diseases, ophthalmology and vision, language sciences, audiology, deafness and hearing, neurology and related basic neuroscience. Our outstanding research spans the bench to bedside spectrum and has global impact. Our education portfolio creates the next generation of leaders; we provide a stimulating and rewarding student experience which enhances employability and supports career development prospects. Our partnerships are groundbreaking and innovative, helping us to sharing our expertise with the world.
Our work is based on our strong values: Excellence; Collegiate and Supportive; Radical and Visionary; Innovative and Entrepreneurial; Enthusiastic, Passionate and Committed; Collaborative and Interdisciplinary; and Transparent. Our work must benefit society (impact), be sustainable and adhere to ethical research practice and integrity.
Our vision for the future is to solve the greatest health and wellbeing problems in the brain sciences in order to transform society and reduce the global burden of disease. The Faculty will play its part to fulfil UCL’s commitment to transform how the world is understood, how knowledge is created and shared and the way that global problems are solved.
