About the Department

In the Developmental Neurobiology Department, we believe that diversity drives discovery. Creative problem-solvers from diverse backgrounds are working together to advance our understanding of nervous system development and disease. While we are tackling some of the most challenging questions in fundamental neuroscience today, we never lose sight of the patients we serve. Our multidisciplinary teams are working urgently to advance promising new therapeutic approaches into clinical trials. Cutting edge technologies essential for our mission are developed and deployed in our innovation hubs. We invite you to explore our research and technology and to meet our team members below.  If you would like to join our team, we are always welcoming new members passionate about contributing to discoveries that will save lives and improve quality of life for children with catastrophic illnesses.
