The Cerebra Network for Neurodevelopmental Disorders
What is the Cerebra Network?
The Cerebra Network is a unique academic team that truly integrates knowledge, expertise and resources across four leading institutions to deliver greater insights into children with rare and complex syndromes. Our aim is to improve the evidence that underpins better assessment and interventions for clinicians, and leads to improved outcomes for these children and their families.
Who is involved in the Cerebra Network?
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. The four institutions involved at University of Birmingham, University of Warwick, Aston University and University of Surrey.
What will we be doing?
There are a number of research projects that fall under the Cerebra Network due to their contribution to our overall aim to improve the evidence that underpins better assessment and interventions for children with rare and complex syndromes. One of these projects is: Behavioural and Emotional Outcomes in Neurodevelopmental Disorders (BEOND), a survey for parents and caregivers of children and adults with rare genetic syndromes and neurodevelopmental disorders.
The Cerebra Network for Neurodevelopmental Disorders is funded by Cerebra from October 2020-2024.
