Welcome to Edinburgh Neuroscience

The mission of Edinburgh Neuroscience is to integrate basic and clinical research in order to drive the fundamental genetic, cellular, organ, systems and computational neuroscience underpinning pathogenesis into mechanistic understanding, future diagnostics and therapeutics of important diseases of the nervous system. Edinburgh Neuroscience is hosted by the College of Medicine and Veterinary Medicine and currently consists of approximately 400 staff, 140 postdoctoral researchers, 230 PhD students and 30 MSc students, working in approximately 120 research laboratories.

In the REF2014 Edinburgh Neuroscience was rated 3rd in the UK for Overall Research Power (THE, Dec15), which takes account of the breadth and quality of our research, it's societal impact and the quality of our research environment. We work hard to provide a dynamic, supportive and creative environment for our researchers and this is reflected in a maximum 100% 4* (world-leading) score for our research environment.
