Research at CCBS is multi-disciplinary, spanning a wide spectrum of methodologies from molecular analyses through human stem cell biology to neuroimaging and clinical trials.
Clinical research & trials
Clinical research - investigating the people affected by brain diseases - is a mainstay of CCBS research.
Complex trait genetics
We aim to dissect the genetic factors that cause or predispose people to brain diseases and conditions.
Imaging the function and structure of the brain using state-of-the-art techniques.
The neuropathologists collaborate widely across CCBS and beyond, and also play a major national role in brain and tissue banking.
Translational neurosurgery aims to inform, enable and accelerate the translation of advances from the laboratory to the operating theatre.
