Cellular & Molecular
Individual neurons and support cells in the nervous system are complex functional units that express a rich array of proteins and signaling molecules that are responsible for global nervous system development and function. Studies of individual neurons and their molecules provides important information about how neurons and support cells develop, communicate and die. This information helps to identify targets and mechanisms of disease and also treatments of those diseases.
The following faculty have labs that focus on Cellular and Molecular Neuroscience:
