Brandeis Research during the COVID-19 Pandemic

Brandeis’ Spring 2021 semester is being conducted in a hybrid fashion, with some students living on campus and taking a portion of their courses in person and some students studying completely remotely. Students, faculty and staff coming to campus should comply with all measures required within the Campus Passport, including testing and taking the Daily Health Assessment. If you have a matter that requires urgent attention, please inform Rebecca (menapace@brandeis.edu) or Paul (pokeefe@brandeis.edu) (and please copy Irv Epstein (epstein@brandeis.edu) and Tessa Venell (tvenell@brandeis.edu) on the correspondence.

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.
