Our People


The core faculty members in our Department direct the research labs, courses and graduate programs that we offer. We also have affiliated faculty members in other departments who provide research opportunities for our students or participate in our teaching. Our research interests range from molecular signaling in neurodegeneration to the social-affective deficits in autism. Our teaching is likewise broad and includes traditional anatomy courses, specialized graduate courses, and courses in teaching itself.


We haveĀ 39 students who are pursuing a graduate degree in Anatomy & Neurobiology. This includes Doctoral, Master’s, and M.D./Ph.D students. Each student has a primary advisor in the Department, as well as the opportunity to pursue research under the sponsorship of our affiliated faculty members. Our students also have the opportunity to teach.
