The Center for Cellular and Molecular Neuroscience serves as a centrally located resource for all neuroscientists at UAMS, providing access to sophisticated equipment, trained technical staff, and the research expertise of established investigators.
The Center for Translational Neuroscience aims to facilitate and integrate research on translational aspects of neuroscience across UAMS, basically bringing basic neuroscience findings to the bedside.
In addition, several members of our faculty participate in the Arkansas Biomedical Research Infrastructure Network (AR BRIN). One of its goals is to expand biomedical research opportunities for undergraduate faculty and students through collaborations with graduate research institutions in Arkansas.
Many of our faculty members are also active in the Arkansas Chapter of the Society for Neuroscience and voluntarily participate in Brain Awareness Week activities.
