Our Programme

The Wellcome Centre for Human Neuroimaging has a strong culture of public engagement where it is embedded within the Centre’s practice.

Our Strategy is to embed meaningful public engagement into the work of the Centre, as a tool for research success rather than an ‘add on’.

Our vision is that our world leading researchers will use their skills and experience to readily engage and empower people with neurological and psychiatric conditions to contribute to and influence our research and that of other neuroscientists across the UK.

Below are some of the projects we are currently running to work towards achieving that vision.
