Strategic Research Programmes

By collaborating with a wide range of academic, health and public organisations, we are able to drive forward and maximise the impact of our Research Institute’s pioneering work.

Relationships range from external collaborations with academic institutions and grants sponsored by foundations to internal programmes conducted by centres within Cardiff University itself.

We are passionate about delivering relevant research which serves a valuable societal purpose and our research team welcome opportunities to build new collaborations. We believe that it is only through a wider communication of science ideas that our staff and students can achieve their core aims when investigating potential treatments and therapies for a range of complex neurological conditions.
