Center for Neuroscience Research

CNR Home

The Tufts Center for Neuroscience Research (CNR) was established in 2003 with funding from the National Institute for Neurological Disorders and Stroke (NINDS) and generous support from Tufts University School of Medicine (TUSM) and Tufts Medical Center.

The primary goals of the CNR are to support neuroscience research efforts and to promote collaborative interactions among neuroscientists at Tufts University and its affiliated hospitals. The CNR is located within the TUSM Department of Neuroscience; it provides core research services to Tufts neuroscientists and other investigators. CNR-supported core facilities offer services for biological imaging, computational genomics, and animal behavior.

The establishment of the CNR and the operation of the core facilities are greatly aided by support from Tufts University, TUSM, Tufts Medical Center and a continuing center core grant from the NINDS.

As an indication of center productivity and its usefulness in research at Tufts, it is important that investigators acknowledge the use of CNR core facilities and assistance in their research publications. Please remember to cite the "Tufts Center for Neuroscience Research, P30 NS047243 (Jackson)".
