The Sheffield Biomedical Research Centre is focused on translational neuroscience for chronic neurological disorders. As the population ages, more people than ever before will be affected by a neurological disease of some kind, but few effective treatments currently exist.
In order to find new treatments, we first need to answer the following questions:
Why do certain diseases develop in some people but not in others?
Why do people with the same disease often progress (experience worsening symptoms) at different rates from each other?
And why do some treatments work in some people but not in others?
