Cork NeuroScience Centre, designated Centre of Excellence in Neurodegeneration

25 Mar 2015

A UCC submission led by Dr Cora O’Neill, Director of the Cork NeuroScience Centre, has led to the Cork NeuroScience Centre being designated as a “Centre of Excellence in Neurodegeneration” (CoEN) after a national and international review process.

This is a highly significant achievement for the Cork NeuroScience Centre giving international recognition to the high quality integrative multidisciplinary research in neurodegeneration in UCC. By gaining CoEN status, the Cork NeuroScience Centre joins a group of international centres eligible to apply for research funding awarded through the international CoEN initiative, including the next Pathfinder call.  Dr. O’Neill is very grateful to the teamwork, collaboration and support from all members of the Cork NeuroScience Centre, Office of Vice-President for Research & Innovation and the University which have enabled this very positive development.
