We undertake mechanistic research, clinical trials, methodology development (MRI, EEG and analytical approaches), with a particular focus on infant pain.
If you are interested in learning more about the development of the human infant brain then get in touch. We have lots of opportunities for students and staff to join our research group.
We are very proud of our public engagement work - here we highlight our research through videos, podcasts, information leaflets and other resources.

Employees can now take up most of our family leave schemes from the first day of employment, meaning that more parents can now enjoy the benefits of our generous provisions. Hayriye Cagnan from the Nuffield Department of Clinical Neurosciences, and husband Eugene Duff from the Department of Paediatrics, discuss their experience of shared parental leave following baby Ida’s arrival ten months ago.
