Research Centres and Facilities
Neuro faculty members lead international research teams that generate fundamental information that spans the full spectrum of neuroscience from cell and molecular biology to brain imaging and cognitive neuroscience.
The Neuro’s multidisciplinary teams, including an additional 220 academic staff, generate fundamental information that spans the full spectrum of neuroscience from cell and molecular biology to brain imaging and cognitive neuroscience.
The programs listed below, offered in partnership with The Neuro, provide scientists and researchers with opportunities to engage in novel cross-disciplinary research, integrating neuroscience with principles of engineering and the physical sciences.
The Neuro Engineering Program and the Rio Tinto Laboratory of Neuro Engineering
The Neuro Engineering Program is a merger of physical and biological sciences. Together, physicists, chemists, materials scientists, computer engineers and neuroscientists tackle the challenges of creating interfaces between neurons and artificial substrates to restore the function of a damaged nervous system.

GBA-Quebec Study Group (G-QUEST) – Parkinson’s Disease
G-QUEST is the first group of scientists and clinicians who are dedicated to solving the numerous challenges in GBA-PD research. Together, we aim to facilitate the development of GBA-targeting drugs into phase I clinical trials by:
- Using different approaches than that typically used for drug development; and
- Testing new hypotheses
- Engaging the power of the Open Science collaborative approach
The Neuro Cambridge University Graduate Studentship Awards
Competitive Graduate Studentship Awards support students working in one of two areas:
- Nervous System Development, Homeostasis, Degeneration and Repair, and
- Autism and Related Neurodevelopmental Conditions.
Awards will be made on a strictly competitive basis. The deadline for receipt of application is August 15th. Successful applicants will be notified during the month of September.
The partners gratefully acknowledge the support of The Douglas Avrith Neuro-Cambridge Neuroscience Collaboration Initiative.
