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. 一元微信提现麻将 

The Medical College of Georgia is the flagship medical school of the University System of Georgia, the state's only public medical school, and one of the top 5 largest medical schools in the United States. 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 risen to its current role optimizing health care in Georgia and beyond through education, discovery, and service.

Renowned pharmacologist, molecular behavioral neuroscientist who is pursuing better treatment targets for PTSD, depression and Alzheimer’s has been named chair of the MCG Department of Neuroscience and Regenerative Medicine.

MCG scientists are exploring how improving the function of our older fat may just help our brains and lower Alzheimer’s risk.

MCG scientists have discovered the chronic activation of the Adora2a receptor is one way obesity and insulin resistance break down one of the the brain's protections against memory loss and confusion.

Scientists report that mice whose neurons don’t make estrogen have impaired spatial reference memory as well as recognition memory and contextual fear memory.
