Neuroscience at Chicago

Research in neuroscience at The University of Chicago is a multi-disciplinary endeavor, which spans a diverse range of topics and techniques from molecules and cells to neural circuits and behavior. Our community of neuroscientists is composed of over 75 faculty members across more than seven academic and clinical departments, all of which are located on the Hyde Park campus — a key feature of our institution which facilitates interactions among researchers and scholars with diverse interests, backgrounds and approaches.

Our faculty, students, and postdoctoral researchers are engaged in uncovering the principles by which the nervous system is organized, mechanisms of perception and behavior, and are paving the way for the next generation of treatments for neurological disease and mental illness.
