We are pleased to announce the formation of the new Oxford Neuroscience Committee. This builds on the success of the previous Neuroscience Strategic Oversight Committee chaired by Christopher Kennard. The new committee will be chaired by Kia Nobre and will help coordinate the future strategy for Oxford Neuroscience to provide a world leading research environment based in first class facilities. Its remit includes coordinating: collaborative programs of research, major funding bids, key appointments, developing the talent pool and juxtaposing key groups to exploit research synergies.
The committee is built around the heads of the main neuroscience departments. Additional key figures are being recruited to represent specific areas.
Kia Nobre (Chair) – Dept. of Experimental Psychology
Irene Tracey – Nuffield Dept. of Clinical Neurosciences
John Geddes - Dept. of Psychiatry
Andrew King – Dept. of Physiology Anatomy and Genetics (Representing David Patterson)
Nigel Emptage – Dept of Pharmacology
David Clark – Research Impact
Zoltan Molnar – History of Neuroscience
Matthew Rushworth - Cognitive Neuroscience

Additional people will be invited to represent other areas
The next meeting is scheduled for the 16th October. The minutes will be made openly available online.
