Upcoming Event

50th ANNIVERSARY CELEBRATION
For the Department of Neurobiology at HMS

Established in 1966, Dr. Stephen W. Kuffler invented a new field called Neurobiology, combining physiology, biochemistry, histology, neuroanatomy, and electron microscopy in a single group. It was the first such department in the world, and it created a model of cross-disciplinary research that has characterized neurobiology ever since. The celebration will honor not only the 50th anniversary of the department and its founding members, but will also look back at the development of the department and the field of Neurobiology. Read more >>
