• Centres of Excellence

    Our first major initiative was developing the Gatsby Computational Neuroscience Unit, now one of the world’s leading centres for theoretical neuroscience. To take advantage of the latest developments, we are now creating major research institutes.

  • Circuits and Behaviour

    The projects in our research portfolio share a common goal – to understand the anatomical and functional development and operation of neural circuits that underlie behaviour. Long-term, we aim to support this research in dedicated, state-of-the-art centres.

  • Multidisciplinary Consortia

    Many of the scientists we support have close ties and, in some cases, ongoing collaboration. We support consortia of laboratories working together on specific topics with common goals that can only be achieved by sharing skills, experience and resources.
