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 Division of Clinical Neurology, the Nuffield Laboratory of Ophthalmology, the Nuffield Division of Anaesthetics, the Wellcome Centre for Integrative Neuroimaging and the Centre for Prevention of Stroke and Dementia. Each division hosts world-leading programmes in basic, translational and clinical research.
The department usually admits around 25 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.
