Research That Matters
Brandeis is where Nobel Prize-winning biologist Michael Rosbash and Jeffrey Hall, professor emeritus of biology, cracked the genetic code of circadian rhythms found in almost all life. It’s where neurobiologist and MacArthur fellow Gina Turrigiano developed her latest theories on sleep. And where scientists at the interdisciplinary Materials Research Science and Engineering Center (MRSEC) are devising revolutionary new materials that promise to transform everything from the way we treat disease to build computers.
