Clinical Neurological Sciences 
- Our Mission

The brain is the most complex organ in the body. It is the centre of what makes us human. Disorders of the brain are just as complex, and can affect our ability to speak, to move, to think, even to simply interact. Consider life with a stroke causing paralysis, or a malignant brain tumour. Few diseases evoke the emotions of fear and helplessness, the loss of dignity and independence, and the impact on one's family as much as diseases of the brain and nervous system.

We (Dr. Michael Strong and Dr. Stephen Lownie) believe that the Department of Clinical Neurological Sciences at Western University should be the premiere site for clinical neuroscience training and research in Canada. We inherited a department with a rich history of clinical investigation and one of the few academic programs in North America in which neurology, neurosurgery, neuropathology, and neuroradiology form a tightly integrated academic program.

Our approach is based on the colloboration and dedication of all our experts and partners to achieve cutting-edge research, advanced education and world class neurological care to patients.

Our Vision

  • To be an international centre for health, education, research and innovation in diseases of the nervous system
