Welcome to the Department of Neuroscience & Regenerative Medicine (DNRM) at the Medical College of Georgia!
The mission of the Department is to promote multidisciplinary research and teaching excellence in both biomedical and clinical sciences.
The department was founded in 1993 as the Institute of Molecular Medicine and Genetics. We seek to attract outstanding faculty and bright students by creating a welcoming, collegial and collaborative environment to foster success and creativity. Our faculty’s research focuses on a variety of fundamental areas, ranging from neurodegenerative and neuropsychiatric disorders, brain injury, learning and memory, neuroprotection, development, inflammation and regenerative medicine, using a broad repertoire of experimental approaches. Our department is also the home to the Transgenic and Genome Editing Core, which is supported by the Georgia Research Alliance.
The Department of Neuroscience & Regenerative Medicine at MCG/AU will host the 2nd Augusta Brain Aging & Neurodegeneration Symposium, dedicated to providing a platform for discussions on the recent advancements and insights in the field of neuroregeneration and neurodegeneration. Open to all members of the AU community, this symposium will take place in person.
Distinguished speakers from the University of Pennsylvania, the University of Georgia, Harvard University and the University of Alabama at Birmingham will be featured at this symposium.
