The Centre for Neuroregeneration (CNR) conducts research at the cellular and molecular levels.
If you apply for one of the programmes listed on the right, you should have already been in contact with your potential future supervisor and have agreed on a research proposal. Otherwise please go to the MSc by Research in Integrative Neuroscience website. This is a programme that will match you up with supervisors and there is no need for a research proposal at this point.
We actively collaborate with clinical neuroscientists as well as computational neuroscientists working in neuroinformatics.
The Edinburgh neuroscience community maintains the highest standards of research training and a long tradition of research publication in international journals.
The division has several interdisciplinary research groups studying the degeneration and repair of neurons and the mechanisms that underlie human neurological diseases.
Training and support
We normally have about 20 PhD students.
Students are assigned to the relevant research group. Each student's progress is monitored by a thesis committee convened from members within these groups. Students participate in a weekly graduate seminar programme, presenting their analysis of original research papers assigned by an expert member of the Edinburgh neuroscience community.
All students are encouraged to present their findings at national and international conferences and to publish their findings in international journals, in advance of submission of their PhD theses for examination.
The CNR has state-of-the-art laboratories in the Chancellor’s Building.
