Interdisciplinary Groups

Faculty within ILS specialize in many thematic research areas, including but not limited to the following interdisciplinary groups. These groups are not degree granting, but involve faculty from degree granting departments affiliated with ILS. As an ILS student, you can pursue research in any departmental or interdisciplinary thematic area or you can define your own unique research topic.

Research Group

Cellular & Molecular Neuroscience

A major goal of neuroscience research is to provide society with the basic information about nervous system function that is critical for developing treatments for neurological and behavioral disorders. Scientific study of the nervous system is thus essential for overall health and well being.
Additional thematic groups of faculty can be found on our Training Grant webpage: Disease Ecology, Genetics, Glycoscience, and Tropical & Emerging Global Diseases.
