Faculty interested in neurobiology research seek to understand the fundamental mechanisms that underlie the growth, maturation and maintenance of specialized cells and formation of circuits found within the nervous system in normal, healthy development and in disease.  We employ a wide range of techniques from Genetics to Biophysics and a wide range of systems from Single Molecules to Whole Animals.  Select a faculty member from the list below to learn more about their specific research.
