departmental building addresses and contacts
The Department operates in three buildings in the South Parks Road Science area: The Sherrington Building - which is linked to both the Centre for Cellular and Molecular Neurobiology (formerly the Oxford Centre for Gene Function) and the Burdon Sanderson Cardiac Science Centre - the Le Gros Clark Building and the Tinsley Building - which houses the Centre for Neural Circuits and Behaviour. We also have research groups housed in the Kavli Institute for Nanoscience Discovery opposite the Sherrington Building, and the Institute of Developmental and Regenerative Medicine (IDRM) on the Old Road Campus.
