Neural Systems Institute @Rockefeller

The Kavli Neural Systems Institute (Kavli NSI) at The Rockefeller University will promote interdisciplinary research and learn to tackle the biggest questions in neuroscience through high-risk, high-reward projects and the development of new research technologies.

“Kavli’s investment in neuroscience at Rockefeller will enable us to create and share new research approaches and laboratory technologies to capture the possibilities of neuroscience from the micro to the macro level,” said Rockefeller President Marc Tessier-Lavigne, PhD.

Centered around 76 cutting-edge laboratories working in a broad range of fields, The Rockefeller University fosters a collaborative research environment for its faculty and provides an innovative educational experience for its outstanding graduate students and postdoc researchers.

To help reduce artificial barriers and provide its investigators with the greatest degree of freedom, Rockefeller does not have academic departments. As a result, the university is not constrained to perform research in any particular field and can recruit the most accomplished and gifted investigators across a wide spectrum of disciplines in the sciences.
