Developmental and Translational Neurobiology Center to open at the Virginia Tech Carilion Research Institute
September 28, 2016
Led by Michael Fox, an associate professor at the Virginia Tech Carilion Research Institute, the Developmental and Translational Neurobiology Center will enhance existing strengths in cell and molecular neuroscience at the institute and create a collaborative community for scientists studying the underlying genetic, molecular, and cellular mechanisms of neurodevelopment and neurodegenerative diseases.
The center will also build upon the Virginia Tech Carilion Research Institute’s cognitive-computational neuroscience programs, the work of the School of Neuroscience in Virginia Tech’s College of Science, and the university’s adaptive brain and behavior destination area. Fox said he hopes to also provide more hands-on research opportunities for graduate and undergraduate students on the Roanoke campus.
