The research aims are to develop and validate neuroimaging markers of central nervous system (CNS) diseases (stroke and carotid artery disease, multiple sclerosis, Parkinson’s disease, Alzheimer disease, mental diseases). There is particular interest in developing markers for early preclinical diagnosis and to quantify treatment effects. The focus is on advanced magnetic resonance imaging and spectroscopy techniques and performing multidisciplinary clinical, translational and methodological research projects (quantitative MRI and morphometry, diffusion tensor imaging, proton spectroscopy, functional and pharmacodynamic assessment, combined EEG-fMRI brain connectivity studies). There is an active interdisciplinary research training programme interfacing clinical and nonclinical fellows and postgraduate students. Main collaborations are with clinicians and academics in clinical neurosciences, vascular surgery, stroke medicine, anaesthesia, and researchers from the Sir Peter Mansfield Centre, the School of Biomedical Sciences, School of Computer Science and Department of Mathematics.

The International Office is the main place for international students to visit when they arrive at the university. It is staffed by a dedicated team of advisors that are there to help with the many issues that can arise from living and studying in a different country. They can help with matters such as immigration and visas, financial advice and family concerns. They are also on hand for matters such as employment and academic difficulties. They organise regular events and even trips to allow students from outside the UK to make the most of their time in the country and to see all that the UK has to offer. There is even help and advice for after studies have finished and students are looking for work. The Students Union are responsible for the organisation of some 190 student clubs and societies along with some 75 sports clubs. There is a student run newspaper as well as a professional sound and lighting company for events in the area.
