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 Medical College of Georgia is the state's only public medical school. Founded
nearly 200 years ago in 1828 as the nation's fifth public medical school, the third
medical school in the Southeast and the thirteenth in the nation, the Medical College
of Georgia has one of the largest class sizes in the country. The medical school works
to optimize health care in Georgia and beyond through education, discovery, and service.

Scientists have evidence these POMC neurons become hyperactive after chronic exposure to stress, leading to things like depression. When their activity is reduced, so are behaviors that lead to these problems.
Scientists at the Medical College of Georgia say it’s time for another look at clonidine.
We need to get beyond the kind of simplistic idea that every sex difference involves hormone differences and hormone exposure, MCG scientists say.
Some mice just seem more susceptible to a lasting impact from a major and/or chronic stressor.
