The Institute of Neurology was established in 1950. It merged with UCL in 1997, becoming the UCL Institute of Neurology. Together with the National Hospital for Neurology and Neurosurgery, an adjacent facility with which it cooperates closely, the Institute forms a major centre for teaching, training and research in neurology and allied clinical and basic neurosciences.
The UCL Queen Square Institute of Neurology has a world class reputation for neuroscience. The mission is to translate neuroscience discovery research into treatments for patients with neurological diseases.
UCL is delighted to announce that conditional planning permission has been granted for a new state-of-the-art facility, which will be home to UCL Neuroscience.
UCL is taking its world-leading neuroscience to the next level to tackle dementia and other brain disorders. We are building a pioneering centre at the heart of London’s knowledge quarter, just minutes from our world-renowned research community at Queen Square. Transforming how we work together as researchers, clinicians and patients, our flagship neuroscience facility will become a powerful tool in UCL’s quest to change discoveries into treatments for some of society’s most devastating diseases.
