The concept for this Institute stems from President Bruininks designation of neuroscience as one of the areas for University-wide development, building on the existing strengths across the University. The ITN is charged to enhance basic science discovery with the new knowledge leading to subsequent clinical trials and establishment of new therapeutic principles or tools. The ITN will create a corridor of discovery and application that leverages the strengths in basic neuroscience, imaging and other interdisciplinary resources.
The Institute for Translational Neuroscience (ITN) at the University of Minnesota (UMN), in conjunction with Departments of Neuroscience and Neurology is seeking up to 3 tenure or tenure-track faculty members with Ph.D. and/or M.D. degrees at Assistant, Associate or Full Professor levels to enhance research strengths in the neurodegenerative and neuromuscular diseases.
The Medical Biosciences Building under construction that will be the new home for the GCMRC as well as the neurodegernation and neuromuscular disease groups.
