By Research Interests

The investigators in the Stark Neurosciences Research Institute are organized into Research Focus Groups. These groups serve to clearly define the areas of expertise and emphasis in the SNRI. Investigators can participate in more than one focus group facilitating even greater interaction and sharing of discoveries that may have broader applicability. Importantly, training programs such as the Ph.D. program in Medical Neurobiology are structured to cross any and all of these groups to provide a broad research experience for trainees. The focus groups and their members are:
