Who Are We?
The UAB Comprehensive Neuroscience Center is a network of 450 UAB neuroscience research faculty, clinicians, staff, students & trainees. Our membership is comprised of neuroscience professionals from 23 UAB departments and 7 UAB schools.
The overall mission of the Comprehensive Neuroscience Center (CNC) is to promote and support interdisciplinary neuroscience research, clinical care and education at UAB.
Despite significant advances over the last 15 years in understanding many basic neurological processes, development of more effective treatments for neurological and psychiatric diseases have been identified as the largest and fastest growing unmet medical need in this country.
The institutions that can most rapidly and creatively establish the necessary neuroscience initiatives to facilitate the translation of basic research discoveries into effective therapies will be positioned to lead neurological and psychiatric disease research into the future.
The UAB CNC serves as the focal point for UAB basic and applied neuroscience research.
