We observe disease to understand disease, and translate basic research into better healthcare.” professor mARA CERCIGNANI

Neurological disorders affect millions of people worldwide. Despite advances in our understanding and treatment of these disorders, great challenges remain. Research at Sussex Neuroscience brings scientists together with exciting multidisciplinary clinical and translational projects to investigate the onset, progression and treatment of conditions such as dementia, motor neuron disease, epilepsy and neuropathic pain, as well as psychiatric disorders such as anxiety and substance abuseOur cutting-edge clinical MRI imaging, molecular and genetics approaches help us to identify druggable targets and the disease biomarkers. Collaborative projects with scientists at the Sussex Drug Discovery Centre and the pharmaceutical industry aim to translate this knowledge from bench to bedside and into clinical trials.
