What do we do?
Diseases of the central nervous system include many of the most disabling conditions, such as multiple sclerosis (MS), stroke, motor neuron disease (MND), Alzheimer’s disease and Parkinson’s disease. These disorders have great cost to patients, their family and carers, and to society as a whole.
We want to understand underlying disease mechanisms in order to treat these conditions effectively.
We are based in the West Wing of the John Radcliffe Hospital. This provides the perfect setting to share facilities, expertise and knowledge, as well as realise our goal of applying our learning in clinical practice.
