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. We conduct collaborative research in several nationally and internationally recognized laboratories, and are currently ranked third for National Institutes of Health (NIH) research funding in the United States.
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 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, and Neurology.
Our department also includes the Kastor Neurobiology of Aging Laboratories, a research program dedicated to studying the aging brain.
