Sainsbury-Wellcome Centre for Neural Circuits & Behaviour

21 August 2008

The Gatsby Charitable Foundation (Gatsby) is delighted that the Wellcome Trust (Wellcome) is collaborating with them for the purpose of developing a new Research Centre in Neural Circuits & Behaviour, to be called the Sainsbury-Wellcome (S-W) Centre, and to support individual researchers in the field of Neural Circuits and Behaviour elsewhere in the UK and the Republic of Ireland.

Quad Gatsby and Wellcome, advised by an international panel of eminent neuroscientists, have selected University College London (UCL) as the preferred host for the Centre. It is hoped that a final decision and formal agreement with UCL will be reached before the end of the year. Further information about the initiative will be made available in due course.
