Wolfson Institute for Biomedical Research

The Wolfson Institute for Biomedical Research was established at UCL in 1995 for the pursuit of excellence in translational biomedical research. Now, with its primary focus on fundamental and translational neuroscience, the WIBR is a key hub within the rich environment of the UCL neuroscience community.

The WIBR is currently home to 14 Principal Investigators, including established senior academics as well as early-career scientists. Collectively we hold more than £25m in grants from The European Research Council, MRC, BBSRC, Wellcome and other biomedical research charities.

Teaching in lab


Researchers within the WIBR organise and contribute to several distinguised undergraduate modules within the School of Life and Medical Sciences. The Institute has around 20 current PhD students, and runs a highly rated one-year MSc degree course in Drug Design.
