Neuroscience remains one of the most rapidly expanding disciplines in biology and medicine. It continues to absorb technological advances from other fields of science that are by no means limited to the traditional areas of biology.

Recent advancements and techniques, ranging from molecular genetics of simple multicellular organisms to imaging the living human brain, enable discoveries of fundamental importance to our understanding of the basis of brain function and its breakdown in neurological and neuropsychiatric disease.

Continuing discoveries offer the promise of developing new strategies for therapeutic intervention in many disabling human diseases such as schizophrenia, dementia, and stroke that are associated with enormous social and economic cost.

At the Center for Neuroscience, we are using cutting-edge technology and pioneering research techniques to conduct discovery-driven science that leads to a better understanding of how the brain works and the development of new therapies for neurological and psychiatric disorders.

I invite you to explore our website, contact us to learn more and consider opportunities to partner with us to change the course of research and treatment for these disorders.

Thank you,
