for Clinicians and Basic Scientists
What is it?
The Leonard Wolfson Experimental Neurology Centre Training Schemes aim to provide an unrivalled opportunity to participate in cutting-edge research under the combined supervision of world-renowned basic scientists and clinical researchers. The hope is that these researchers will become the future leaders of neurodegeneration research, ultimately advancing our understanding and treatment of neurodegenerative disease (NDD).
Who is it for?
We invite applications from highly motivated neuroscientists and clinical academics interested in using interdisciplinary approaches to address a variety of questions in neurodegeneration research.
- The 4-year PhD Programme for Non-clinical Fellows is a four year programme aimed at graduates with a background in the biological, physical, and chemical sciences who have an interest in NDD.
- The 4-year Clinical Training Fellowship programme is aimed at clinicians who wish to pursue a career in academic clinical research. They will be expected to undertake substantial training through high-quality research within UCL towards a PhD qualification.
- For engineering graduates, there is also a fellowship available to pursue NDD research through the Doctoral Training Programme in Medical and Biomedical Imaging as part of this programme.
- There is also an MSc in Dementia which offers bursaries funded by the Leonard Wolfson Experimental Neurology Centre through the neuroscience pathway.
