The Nuffield Department of Clinical Neurosciences (NDCN) comprises over 400 staff including around 100 graduate students. The DPhil in Clinical Neurosciences covers all areas of the research carried out in the department.
NDCN was formed in November 2010 and incorporates the Centre for Prevention of Stroke and Dementia, Division of Clinical Neurology, MRC Brain Network Dynamics Unit, Nuffield Division of Anaesthetics, Nuffield Laboratory of Ophthalmology and the Wellcome Centre for Integrative Neuroimaging.
The department usually admits around 30 students per year, from both scientific and clinical backgrounds. Each student will work on a specified research project with close supervision from one or more of the department’s principal investigators and their teams, and become part of a vibrant research community both within the department and the wider University.
