About The School

The School of Neurobiology, Biochemistry and Biophysics contains two departments; the Department of Neurobiology and the Department of Biochemistry & Molecular Biology.  Both departments focus on investigating the molecular basis of biological processes in cell systems or organisms.  The focus of the first department is biological processes that occur in the nervous system.  A wide range of processes are addressed in both departments that include expression of genes and epigenetics, development and differentiation, signal transduction events, memory and behavior, neuro-vascularity, bioinformatics, structural biology of molecular processes, synaptic activities, neuroimmunology, biological clocks, neurodegenerative diseases and cancer.  Research in the School is conducted at the level of molecules, cells and organisms.  The diversity of the methods used in the projects reflects the multidisciplinary nature and novelty of the research conducted in the school.
