The aim of this programme is to train a new generation of physicians and scientists able to successfully transfer neuroscience and pharmacology discoveries from the bench to the bedside. The course emphasizes a true translational approach by teaching basic science in an academic environment, involving you in current research techniques and also offering the opportunity to meet patients suffering from a range of neurological diseases.

The topics covered range from the principles of drug design and development to clinical aspects of the management of major neurological diseases, thus providing specialised training and essential skills for translational research. The clinical component is unique to this course and ties together the scientific, clinical and personal aspects of neurological disease.
