Welcome to the Department of Neuroscience & Regenerative Medicine at the Medical College of Georgia! The Department was founded in 1993, formerly as the Institute of Molecular Medicine and Genetics. The mission of the Department is to promote multidisciplinary research and teaching excellence in both biomedical and clinical sciences. We seek to attract outstanding faculty and bright students by creating a welcoming, collegial and collaborative environment to foster success and creativity. Our faculty study a variety of fundamental questions 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 supported by the Georgia Research Alliance.
