Check out our brain film!

Brain disease research- Keeping you you

Thanks to generous funding from the Wellcome Trust, great ideas from our focus group attendees, beautiful images from our scientists and with the help of filmmaker Geoff Marsh, we created a short film taking you on a whirlwind tour of brain research. From those affected by brain disease, to those spared like Granny Marsh, 90 years old and spritely. Learn about the questions we are asking about the brain, and see how we look at individual brain cells, proteins and genes.

Feel free to leave your comments and to share the film with loved ones via Facebook or Twitter.
