Centre for Integrative Neuroscience Discovery

About the Centre for Integrative Neuroscience Discovery

The Centre for Integrative Neuroscience Discovery (CIND) brings together researchers working at the intersections of neurocognition, neurocomputation and neurotechnology. We interface between neuroscience, biological sciences, computer science, engineering and the AI and data science community at the University of Cambridge. We enable collaborations across Cambridge’s cross-disciplinary research community in discovery neuroscience that have strong translational potential in the development of AI systems, neurotechnology solutions and clinical applications. 

Currently, our main mechanism for enabling collaboration is the provision of pilot grants for interdisciplinary neuroscience research projects. A competitive funding call for ECR projects is now open and closes on 2 June 2023. We recently announced the awardees of our funding call for PI collaborations, run earlier this year.

The goal of CIND is to understand the fundamental mechanisms of nervous system function by enabling interdisciplinary research integrating molecular, circuit, behavioural, and cognitive neuroscience using a combination of experimental and computational approaches. 

We aim to facilitate collaboration amongst scientists of all disciplines to enable progress via:

  • The development and application of new experimental and analytic techniques to accelerate neuroscience research
  • The close interaction between theorists and experimentalists to enhance discovery in cross-disciplinary research in neuroscience focusing on computational neuroscience, artificial and biological intelligence, and neurotechnology
  • The establishment of a nucleus of dynamic and interactive research groups to facilitate novel avenues of research 

CIND is funded by the University of Cambridge Academic Seed Fund.
