OUR TEAM

The Cerebra Network grew out of the Cerebra Centre at the University of Birmingham which was founded in 2008 by Prof Chris Oliver with the support of Cerebra. Now the Cerebra Network exists as a collaborative team of researchers working across  the UK to produce high quality research that will improve the lives of people with neurodevelopmental disorders and rare genetic syndromes.
