Wolfson Centre

 

About

Research in the Wolfson Centre focuses on the molecular basis of pain and hearing loss, and on neural repair and regeneration following disease and injury. Our fundamental mission is to understand the biological mechanisms behind these neurological and sensory disorders and harness this knowledge to develop new therapeutic strategies. To achieve these goals, we conduct cutting-edge translational neuroscience research in a positive, inclusive, and collaborative environment.

A core strength of the Wolfson CARD is the parallel use of pre-clinical cell and in vivo models, alongside human cellular models, which provides an essential platform for us to forward- and back-translate our fundamental research to and from the clinic. Additional strengths lie in our world-leading expertise in neuroplasticity, interdisciplinary neuro-immune research, high-throughput sequencing technologies, drug discovery and advanced therapeutics.

Our research spans the following areas:
