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.
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 mission of the ZNZ is to promote neuroscience research at ETH and University of Zurich by increasing scientific interaction between and among basic, applied and clinical research groups, improving the mutual utilization of infrastructure, fostering training with the International Ph.D. Program in Neuroscience, providing financial support, establishing and improving relations to other research centres, patient advocacy groups,universities and industry, and enhancing public awareness of neuroscience research.
