The University of Southampton
Southampton Clinical and Experimental Neurology Team


The Southampton Clinical and Experimental Neurology Team (SCENT) is a team of scientists and clinicians from across the University of Southampton and University Hospital Southampton NHS Foundation Trust interested in inflammatory and haemorrhagic brain conditions. 

Several clinical and lab-based research projects aim to better understand brain inflammation and the role of the blood-brain barrier in the progression of neurological disease and in acute events such as subarachnoid or intracerebral haemorrhage. A key aim of SCENT is the rapid translation of concepts from discovery science to clinical practice.

SCENT works closely with Southampton Translational Research In MS (STRIMS), a collaborative group working at the clinical/research interface and specifically interested in Multiple Sclerosis. STRIMS includes the Wessex MS Service covering a catchment area of four million in the South of England, incorporating Hampshire, Isle of Wight and surrounding regions. The Wessex MS Service delivers a comprehensive tertiary service, including diagnosis, initiation of treatment and follow-up. A network of community-based specialist MS nurses and district hospital-based neurologists are coordinated from the Wessex Neurological Centre located in Southampton.
