Washington University Faculty Engaged in Neuroscience Research

The table below is intended as a resource to identify Washington University faculty who are engaged in Neuroscience Research.  "Neuroscience Research" is broadly defined, ranging from the study of development and function on a molecular level to inquiries on human behavior. It includes preclinical as well as clinical investigations.  Some on the table below are engaged exclusively in Neuroscience research; others have entered the field by collaboration, bringing unique expertise and background.

For each investigator, note that the last name is a hyperlink to a department or other webpage.  This is a new resource, and is still under contruction.  As this page continues to be finalized, we welcome input.  Please forward any comments to Anneliese Schaefer.
