Pharmacology and Neuroscience

Mission: To discover new solutions for brain disease through science and understanding.

We are dedicated to exploring the biological basis of brain disease and injury and is committed to preclinical science focused on the development of treatment strategies for prevention and recovery.  Our center maintains state-of-the-art basic and preclinical science facilities and supports distinguished faculty with research programs targeting neurovascular disease and stroke, Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s diseases, neuropsychiatric disorders and substance abuse. Our faculty have extensive interactions with the other health institutes and collaborate with the Graduate School of Biomedical Sciences by sponsoring graduate training programs in the basic neurosciences, the neurobiology of aging, and pharmacology, which take advantage of strong research programs in the disciplines of molecular pharmacology, neuroendocrinology, and the biology of aging.
