The experimental neurobiology research program is home to scientists who study biochemistry, physiology, pharmacology, and behavioral functions of nervous systems as well as mechanisms of neurological and psychiatric diseases. The specialized nature and highly interdisciplinary character of neurobiological research require a coordinated effort to improve health care and public understanding/acceptance of all mental health related issues. We have created an environment to foster highly collaborative and interactive research, in laboratories minimizing physical and intellectual boundaries. This environment not only promotes the flow of information and expertise to synergize the process of discovery but provides the framework for excellence and commitment to teaching students.
