Lead academic: Dr Julie Simpson

This course is focused on the molecular basis of neurodegeneration, and looks at how laboratory research relating to brain structure and function informs the development of new therapies for diseases of the nervous system.

Combining the research strengths from the Faculty of Medicine, Dentistry and Health and the Faculty of Science, leading international basic and clinical scientists will provide an innovative and progressive programme. You’ll study basic neurobiology and molecular biology through to neuroimaging and applied clinical practice.

The MSc will provide you with up-to-date knowledge of advances in the field, research experience with internationally renowned research groups and transferable skills to provide a springboard for your future career.

You’ll study at the Sheffield Institute of Translational Neuroscience (SITraN), within the Department of Neuroscience. SITraN is the first European Institute purpose-built and dedicated to basic and clinical research into Motor Neuron Disease (MND) and related neurodegenerative disorders such as Parkinson's and Alzheimer's disease.
