Center for Integrative Brain Research

The Center for Integrative Brain Research is unraveling the mechanisms beneath neurological, neurodevelopmental and neuropsychiatric disorders. This knowledge will lay the foundation for innovative pediatric therapies that prevent or cure these disorders. Learn more on our University of Washington website.

Integrating Knowledge Across Disciplines

CIBR's approach is to integrate knowledge at the genetic, molecular, cellular, network and behavioral levels to better understand a wide spectrum of neuronal functions and brain-related diseases.

Featured Research

  • Discovery + Existing Drugs = New Hope
