About the Centre for Neuroregeneration
The University of Edinburgh's Centre for Neuroregeneration (CNR) seeks to understand the mechanisms of neural development, injury and repair. The CNR is a research centre within the Edinburgh Medical School's Deanery of Biomedical Sciences that promotes scientific research and education through seminars, recruitment, graduate training and public engagement.
CNR research focuses on the molecular and cellular mechanisms of regeneration in a range of diseases of the nervous system including, multiple sclerosis, motor neuron disease, peripheral neuropathies, brain cancers, stroke, Alzheimer's disease and nerve injury. Further information about the Centre's research is availble on our Principal Investigator's pages.
By identifying the functions of genes, refining biological imaging techniques, and creating more sophisticated disease models, the CNR is contributing to the development of new therapies for a range of neurodegenerative diseases.
We are always interested in applications from neuroscientists whose research programmes complement our themes and who would be strong candidates for prestigious fellowships from the Wellcome Trust, the UK's Medical Research Council, Biotechnology and Biological Sciences Research Council, the Royal Society or other sources.
