Welcome to the Department of Anatomy and Neurobiology at the VCU School of Medicine. Our department offers outstanding neuroscience education for Ph.D. students and exciting research opportunities for postdoctoral scientists that span cellular to systems neuroscience. The Department of Anatomy and Neurobiology houses one of the largest number of neuroscientists in the university and maintains dynamic research groups in glial cell biology, plasticity, development and circuitry and central nervous system injury and repair.
The department offers a strong collegial atmosphere and we take pride in our friendly and vibrant work environment. Faculty, students, postdoctoral fellows and administrators work together to promote and share in the discovery of fundamental principles of neuroscience.
