Research That Matters

Brandeis is where biologist Michael Rosbash cracked the genetic code of circadian rhythm in all living creatures. 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.
