Basic & Clinical Neuroscience

About

Neurological diseases, particularly neurodegenerative diseases are common and serious, often with a major impact on the lives of those affected. We research the causes of these conditions and how discoveries in the laboratory can be translated into new therapies for patients. By working closely with King’s College Hospital, Guy’s Hospital and St Thomas’ Hospital, we ensure novel treatments are both effective and practical. Our Head of Department, Ammar Al-Chalabi, Professor of Neurology and Complex Disease Genetics, leads a team of people including clinicians working closely with people affected by these conditions, and scientists researching the underlying causes.
