Committed to fundamental neuroscience research

The UAB Department of Neurobiology is making a national and international impact in fundamental neuroscience research. Our faculty have received numerous national and international awards recognizing excellence in research and training and provide a unique perspective for interdisciplinary neuroscience research and teaching careers at academic health science centers.


We focus on the molecular and cellular basis of normal structure and function of the nervous system, with applications to neurological health and disease.


Graduate students and postdoctoral fellows train in advanced research techniques and the neurobiology of disease.
