The Fishberg Department of Neuroscience at the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai investigates the nervous system at the molecular, cellular, systems, and behavioral levels using a variety of model systems, from flies and worms, to transgenic mice and rats, to non-human primates as well as the human brain itself. We conduct collaborative research in nationally and internationally recognized laboratories, and are currently ranked second in research funding from the National Institutes of Health (NIH).
Our faculty continuously seeks to further neuroscience education, and conducts a large portion of the Graduate School of Biomedical Sciences’ neuroscience multidisciplinary training.
We collaborate with other academic departments, centers and Institutes to provide initiatives such as joint seminars, residency programs, and postdoctoral fellowships. We also have multidisciplinary research collaborations with the Departments of Geriatrics and Adult Development, Psychiatry, Neurology, Genetics and Genomic Sciences, Immunology and many others.
