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, nucleic acid quantification, real-time PCR (RT-PCR) and rodent behavioral testing.
The establishment of the CNR and the operation of the core facilities are greatly aided by support from Tufts University and TUSM.
