Neurobiology

Neurobiology is one of the most exciting and rapidly growing fields within biology today. The basis of neurological disease, molecular mechanisms of brain functioning, and behavior are major foci of research in medicine, biotechnology, and academia. Each of these fields offer significant potential for cutting-edge research approaches, especially to help address problems relating to neurodegenerative diseases and neurological dysfunction.
