University College London

UCL is one of the world’s leading institutions for neuroscience, with research spanning seven core areas; molecular, developmental, cellular, systems, cognitive, computational and clinical. UCL is ranked second in the world, and first in Europe, in neuroscience and behaviour by Thomson ISI Essential Science Indicators, with more than twice as many publications and citations as any other European institution.

The breadth and depth of neuroscience expertise at UCL offers an unrivalled wealth of opportunities for undertaking cutting-edge, collaborative, interdisciplinary research. The majority of neuroscience activity is undertaken within the School of Life and Medical Sciences, principally in the Faculties of Brain Sciences and Life Sciences, but also in the Faculties of Medical Sciences and Population Health Sciences. UCL is a multi-faculty University and our neuroscience activity is enriched by expertise from other areas, such as Biomedical Engineering, the London Centre for Nanotechnology, and the Departments of Computer Science, Chemistry and Physics.

UCL also provides an outstanding environment for training future generations of interdisciplinary researchers in basic and clinical neuroscience. Its scientific excellence and location in the heart of London attracts many of the best students from around the world. UCL offers a number of undergraduate and postgraduate (Master’s) degree programmes dedicated to neuroscience, plus several flagship PhD programmes solely dedicated to different aspects of neuroscience.

The UCL Neuroscience Domain is responsible for coordinating and developing activities across the full spectrum of neuroscience at UCL. For details about UCL Neuroscience please see the domain website:
