The Nuffield Department of Clinical Neurosciences hosts world-leading programmes in basic, translational and clinical neuroscience research. Our integrated approach allows for the swift transfer of basic biomedical findings to the clinical setting. We deliver evidence-based therapies of high impact for the benefit of society and the economy. In 2014 our Department was ranked first place in Unit of Assessment 4 (Clinical Neuroscience, Psychology and Psychiatry) of the UK’s Research Excellence Framework exercise. 95% of our submission was rated as world leading or internationally excellent, and we scored 100% for the quality of our research and training environment.
