Our Mission

The University of Pittsburgh established CNUP in 1984 to encourage the development of a neuroscience community and to enhance communication and collaboration among investigators in this multidisciplinary area. Over the years, our goals have grown and evolved, and CNUP is dedicated to:

  • Encourage and coordinate research and academic programs in neuroscience;
  • Develop and coordinate academic training programs in neuroscience at the undergraduate, doctoral, and post-doctoral levels;
  • Foster collaborative research between and among basic and clinical neuroscientists; and
  • Provide a resource to the local community on neuroscience-related issues.
