The neuropathologists collaborate widely across CCBS and beyond, and also play a major national role in brain and tissue banking.
The Edinburgh Brain and Tissue Bank
The Edinburgh Brain and Tissue Bank is part of the MRC UK Brain Banks Network. The bank collects donated samples from the brain and other organs during post-mortem examination, and makes them available for medical research.
Neuropathology in brain disease
The neuropathologists work with many CCBS researchers to provide detailed neuropathological analysis of human samples. Particular research interests are focused on cerebrovascular disease and neurodegenerative disease including prion disease.
