Neurobiology

The department conducts research in the fields of neurobiology and neuropathology; we investigate mechanisms that regulate normal brain function as well as the causes and consequences of dysfunction during ageing and in acute or chronic neurodegenerative disease; our programme of research utilises a wide spectrum of approaches, from the molecular to the whole animal; we address how multiple systems in the periphery and multiple cell types in the central nervous system impact on the function and dysfunction of the brain.

Entry requirements

In order to be considered for the programme we require a relevant undergraduate degree with a UK 2.1 or higher result, or its international equivalent; before making your application, students must make contact with a potential supervisor to discuss their research proposal; applicants whose 1st language is not English require: IELTS 6.5 (with at least 6.0 in each module); TOEFL internet-based test 92 (with at least 20 in each module); PTE 61 (with at least 56 in each of the communicative skills sections); or CPE grade C or CAE grade B.
