Did You Know?
The Rosenstiel Basic Medical Sciences Research Center is a research center unlike any other in the United States.
Other research centers and institutes at the university that reflect Brandeis' commitment to advanced scientific research, social justice and social policy and various areas of Jewish life and Judaica are as follows.
Ashton Graybiel Spatial Orientation Laboratory
The Ashton Graybiel Spatial Orientation Laboratory pursues research in human spatial orientation, motor control and adaptation. Unique approaches include emphasis on intersensory and sensory-motor interactions, recognition of the intimate relationship between moment-to-moment control and long-term adaptation and exploitation of nonterrestrial conditions, such as space flight, artificial gravity and virtual environments.
Center for Behavioral Genomics
The Center for Behavioral Genomics combines cutting-edge research and research training. Its strategy is to apply the information from the human genome project and other genetic advances and link these genomic tools to molecular, cellular and systems analyses of brain functions. The goal is to understand and identify treatments for complex behaviors, dysfunctions and diseases.
Rosenstiel Basic Medical Sciences Research Center
The Rosenstiel Basic Medical Sciences Research Center is a research center unlike any other in the United States. Its unique mission is to bring together in one facility world-class scientists from a wide range of disciplines, but with a common focus: the application of the tools of structural biology, genetics and immunology to basic research questions with immediate and long-term impact on human health.
It is one of the nation's leading centers for research programs in the basic medical sciences, embracing work in biochemistry, biology, biophysics, molecular biology, immunology and protein crystallography.
The W.M. Keck Institute for Cellular Visualization is affiliated with the Rosenstiel Basic Medical Sciences Research Center.
Sloan-Swartz Center for Theoretical Neurobiology
The Sloan-Swartz Center for Theoretical Neurobiology at Brandeis University is devoted to training predoctoral students and postdoctoral researchers with strong analytic and computational backgrounds to apply these skills to neuroscience.
Volen National Center for Complex Systems
The Volen National Center for Complex Systems is a multidisciplinary center dedicated to the study of nervous system function, cognition and biological and artificial intelligence.
