About the Faculty

Within the Faculty of Brain Sciences, our vision for the future is to use our world-leading expertise in brain sciences to solve some of the world’s greatest health challenges, transforming society by reducing the global burden of disease.

Welcome to the Faculty of Brain Sciences. We are a global leader in pioneering research into brain diseases, and are home to some of the world's most influential and creative researchers in the field. 

We offer a wealth of scientific and clinical expertise, from laboratory benches through to patient care, and our research and educational programmes are highly interdisciplinary. Our Faculty brings together areas that include psychology, psychiatry, prion diseases, ophthalmology and vision, language sciences, audiology, deafness and hearing, neurology and related basic neuroscience.

Through research embedded education, we aim to prepare our students not only to succeed, but to become the next generation of experts in brain sciences. Our extensive collaboration with industry and clinical partners enables us to share our knowledge and put our cutting-edge research to use in developing clinical studies and innovative technologies. 

By pushing the boundaries of current research and clinical practice in the brain sciences, we aim to lead the way in transforming the lives of future generations.
