About Translational Neuropathology at University of Sheffield

Lead academic: Dr Julie Simpson

This course combines taught modules on the fundamental aspects of the major nervous system diseases, with the development of practical laboratory skills encompassing histopathology, molecular pathology and microscopy.

You'll be trained to use tissue samples in neuroscience research aimed at understanding the pathophysiology of nervous system diseases and you'll discover how laboratory breakthroughs have been translated into clinical benefits.

The course will be taught by scientists and consultant neuropathologists who are experts in their fields. You'll get the opportunity to carry out neuroanatomy dissection and you'll work with leading research groups during the research project.

The practical application of laboratory techniques throughout the course will give you a contextual grounding in a research setting and are relevant to a career in academia, diagnostic laboratories or the biotechnology sector.

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