The University of Edinburgh's Centre for Neuroregeneration (formerly the Centre for Neuroscience Research) seeks to understand the mechanisms of neural development, injury and repair. The CNR, a research centre within the School of Biomedical Sciences, promotes scientific research and education through seminars, recruitment, graduate training and public engagement.
CNR researchers, in collaboration with the Euan MacDonald Centre for MND Research and University of Edinburgh Centre for Multiple Sclerosis Research, are leading the way towards improving our understanding of the fundamental biological processes underlying conditions such as Multiple Sclerosis and Motor Neurone Disease.
By identifying the functions of genes, refining biological imaging techniques, and creating more sophisticated disease models, the CNR is contributing to the development of new therapies for a range of neurodegenerative diseases.
We are always interested in applications from neuroscientists whose research programmes complement our themes and who would be strong candidates for prestigious fellowships from the Wellcome trust, MRC, BBSRC, the Royal Society or other sources.
