Neuroscience at Madison
It is a very exciting time for neuroscience at the University of Wisconsin.
The newly-formed Department of Neuroscience, which includes faculty from the former Depts. of Physiology and Anatomy,
will consolidate the strengths in research and teaching in neuroscience, an important area of biomedical research within the
School of Medicine and Public Health. Faculty in these departments have strengths in complementary research areas.
An important goal is to bring together investigators studying fundamental processes and to use the information obtained
to develop therapeutic interventions in the treatment of human disease.
By bringing together faculty who have common interests, or who use common techniques, equipment and expertise,
resources can more easily be shared and cooperative ventures catalyzed.
