Do you want to work with us to tackle chronic and rare neurological diseases? We bring together the brightest research talent in neuroscience, clinical neurology, genetics, cell biology, materials chemistry and patient data analytics. Our scientists and clinicians engage with patients, healthcare providers, industry partners and policy makers to reduce the individual,societal and economic burden of neurological diseases.
We are dedicated to working and collaborating with the best people and organisations to confirm our commitment to keeping people with neurological diseases at the centre of our research.
Public Patient Involvement
Public and patient involvement in research is called PPI for short. PPI is research carried out ‘with’ or ‘by’ members of the public rather than ‘to’, ‘about’ or ‘for’ them.
Patients or members of the public are partners in areas such as:
- Being a member of a research team
- Deciding what research is funded
- Deciding what questions research answers
- Deciding what methods are used
- Developing documents, leaflets or articles
- Interviewing research participants
- Developing research findings
- Telling people about research results
We are really passionate about embedding PPI into our research. A number of our projects already involve PPI contributors and we are committed to expanding and enhancing PPI within FutureNeuro. We work with a number of patient organisations to ensure that our research is patient-centred and over the coming months, we will be seeking new PPI contributors to help us shape and develop our pre-clinical research.

Marie Curie Fellowships
If you are interested in applying for a Marie Skłodowska-Curie Individual Fellowship, we can provide support and assistance at all stages of the process, from the development of your application to the progression of your career trajectory. We have had strong success rates with previous MSCA calls and there are already a number of fellows working within FutureNeuro.
PhD opportunities in Genomics
A number of our researchers are involved with the new SFI Centre for Research Training in Genomics Data Science. FutureNeuro investigators David Henshall, Gianpiero Cavalleri, Orla Hardiman, Jochen Prehn and Catherine Mooney are all available as PhD supervisors. Students will choose projects from across the seven research themes of the programme.
