International neuroscience institutions strategically linked with Oxford

Oxford already has a very strong base in neuroscience. This is built on integrated research programmes which bring together multidisciplinary basic and clinical scientists from diverse fields. We recognise the added value that collaboration brings, so we are keen to foster links with other institutions. 

A major project in this area is the Oxford-Brain@McGill-ZNZ Partnership in the Neurosciences which provides support for workshops, postdoc exchanges and pilot projects. 

HOTCHKISS BRAIN INSTITUTE

The mission of the Hotchkiss Brain Institute (HBI) is to be a centre of excellence in neurological and mental health research, translating discoveries into innovative health care solutions. This mission will aim to support and conduct research on the healthy and diseased brain, spinal cord and peripheral nerves to assess, understand and disseminate knowledge about the diseases affecting the nervous system.

The CRN is a vibrant centre for neurological research combining basic and clinical scientists, with nine highly interactive research groups. Faculty members hold academic appointments in a number of departments across McGill and at other institutions. In recent years they have launched physiological, genetic, molecular and cellular studies into neural degeneration and re-growth. This work has led to major advances in basic and medical neurosciences, including the discovery of novel mechanisms of neuronal function and new insights into the mechanisms of neuronal growth and synapse formation during development and regeneration.
