The Center for Neuropharmacology & Neuroscience (CNN) is composed of faculty and students with research interests that are focused on the nervous system. One major purpose of the CNN is to facilitate and strengthen collaborations in neuroscience research. It also provides a unique interface for interactions among clinical and basic scientists. Neuropharmacology and Neuroscience are large and diverse fields that encompass physiology, pharmacology, anatomy, behavior, development, neural disorders and diseases. The techniques used to study these different research areas include analytical chemistry, biophysics, biochemistry, molecular biology, cell biology, electrophysiology, behavioral testing, and cell culture. Another major focus of the Center is training future neuroscientists. Albany Medical College has a graduate program designed to provide the education and expertise needed for a career in neuropharmacology and neuroscience research. Our students are supervised by internationally recognized faculty and they benefit from the individual attention that this program fosters. Graduates of this program are well-prepared for careers in research and teaching in a variety of academic, clinical and industrial settings.
