The Neuroscience and Cell Biology Research Institute is led by Professor Franklyn Howe. 

We have strong links with clinicians and clinical academics at St George’s University Hospital Trust, emphasizing translational research facilitated by the Neurosciences Clinical Academic Group (CAG) and the Genetics CAG, led by clinical academics within our institute.

In our neuroscience research, we aim to enhance our understanding of neurological disorders, leading to improved diagnosis and treatments. We focus on various conditions such as dementias, cerebrovascular disease, traumatic brain injury, brain tumours, and neuromuscular disorders.
