New neuroscience centre launch

18 December 2007

The Cardiff Neurosciences Centre (CNC), a new virtual centre, is drawing together neuroscience expertise from schools and centres across the University and the Cardiff and Vale NHS Trust.

Established in September, the Centre now has over hundred senior researchers involved in many aspects of clinical and non-clinical neuroscience research. Areas of interest include: Molecular and Cellular Neuroscience, Neuronal Development, Neurophysiology, Synaptic Plasticity and Learning and Memory, Neurodegeneration, Neuroimaging, Psychiatric Genetics, Behavioural Neuroscience, Cognitive Neuroscience and Perception.

The activities organised by the Centre will encourage networking, facilitate new ideas, augment the quality, quantity and range of neuroscience research taking place at Cardiff, promote interdisciplinary activity and attract more large multi-disciplinary bids.

The Centre’s internal launch will take place on Friday 25 January 2008 in committee Rooms 1&2, Glamorgan building. Presentations from researchers in a number of schools and centres will address the theme of New Opportunities for Neuroscience at Cardiff. Any Cardiff academic with an interest in Neuroscience or Neuroscience-related research should not miss this opportunity to learn more about the CNC, potential interdisciplinary collaborations and the Centre’s vision of understanding the brain in health and disease.
