The University of Central Lancashire (UCLan) has a number of different schools which have active neuroscience research. Within the Faculty of Clinical and Biomedical Sciences we have two schools (Medicine & Dentistry, Pharmacy & Biomedical Sciences) that each undertake research into neuroscience. Our School of Psychology also has an active Neuroscience group as does the School of Health Sciences.

At UCLan we have a large community of scientists and clinicians undertaking research into neuroscience. Perhaps the largest group is within the school of Pharmacy & Biomedical Sciences. Here we have research groups studying Alzheimer's disease and other types of dementia, brain tumours (closely alligned with Brain Tumour North West) and more basic aspects of neuroscience, such as neurotransmitter release and enviromental enrichment.

Within the School of Medicine and Dentistry we have researchers examining the link between oral bacteria and Alzheimer's disease. Within the School of Psychology we have groups studying stress and cognitive neuroscience.

At UClan we focus on cross-disciplinary neuroscience research with a bench to bedside approach.
