Course Summary

Disorders of the nervous system are major causes of disability globally. Neurological Science offers a range of one year research projects designed for medical students interested in working for an intercalated MPhil.

Overview

The University of Liverpool’s Institute of Infection and Global Health was established to bring together leading medical, veterinary and basic science researchers from across the Faculty of Health and Life Sciences.

The areas of study available include both applied and basic aspects of neurological infections, epilepsy, pain, magnetic resonance imaging, and health services research.

Neuroscience includes some of the most outstanding research groups in the University, with three major strengths – Neurological Infections, Epilepsy and Health Services Research, and Pain; in addition to these areas there is ongoing research in a range of other neurology subspecialities, such as multiple sclerosis and Parkinson’s disease. Research disciplines range from detailed neuropath genesis and molecular genetic studies, through clinical trials and public health interventions.
