About Center for Molecular and Behavioral Neuroscience, Rutgers University - Newark
The Center for Molecular and Behavioral Neuroscience's mission is to advance understanding of the brain’s structure and function through excellence in neuroscience research and training. We believe this goal can only be reached through an integrative approach that cuts across the boundaries of traditional disciplines. Thus, CMBN researchers combine molecular, electrophysiological, neurochemical, anatomical, imaging, behavioral, and neuropsychological methods to analyze how the brain works, develops, interacts with the environment, and is modified by experience in health and disease. CMBN is also committed to serving the academic and surrounding Newark communities through educational outreach, community service, and research internship programs that train undergraduate and high school students.
CMBN is part of the School of Arts and Sciences-Newark (SASN); a place where exploration, discovery, and imagination come together to form the core of a liberal arts education. We serve all undergraduates at Rutgers University-Newark (RU-N); and offer a broad selection of more than 2,000 undergraduate and graduate courses a year in more than 40 subjects. SASN combines the best of a large r...esearch university with a small liberal arts college. RU-N is a remarkably diverse, urban, public research university that is not just in Newark but of Newark-an anchor of our home city.
