We study how the nervous system works – how it is built, how it operates on cellular and systems levels, how drugs affect it, and how it is damaged in neurodegenerative diseases. Our faculty members continue to make cutting edge contributions to neurobiology research, attracting significant research grants from leading government agencies and charitable foundations. At the same time, the Department of Neurobiology is dedicated to cultivating young scientists who will take up the quest for discovery to benefit future generations. Our laboratories are teeming with some of the brightest minds in the world, all directed at studying the complexities of the brain.
