Welcome to the Department of Neuroscience

Stem cells

To understand how our nervous system functions and the mechanisms underlying its disorders is an outstanding challenge for biomedical research.

At the Department of Neuroscience, we are working hard to increase our knowledge and insights into this area as well as into large areas of our musculoskeletal system and its disorders. A major objective with our research is to develop novel strategies to prevent and treat diseases and injuries in the nervous system and musculoskeletal system. By participating in different educational programs and courses, scientists at the Department communicate their knowledge to a wide range of future professional specialists – for example nurses, physicians, physiotherapists, speech pathologists and biomedical researchers.

We are about 130 employees, 100 graduate students and numerous young postdoctoral fellows. Moreover, a large number of professionals carry out research and teaching at Uppsala University Hospital (Akademiska sjukhuset) within the framework of the Department’s activity. Basic research is predominantly carried out the Uppsala University Biomedical Center (BMC) and clinical research at various units in Akademiska sjukhuset.
