The Center for Molecular and Behavioral Neuroscience (CMBN) was established by the Board of Governors of Rutgers University in 1985 at the request of the Institute of Animal Behavior and the Biological Sciences and Chemistry Departments to establish the Rutgers-Newark campus as the University's Neuroscience Center. Building on the strengths in neurobiological and behavioral research already present on the campus, the aim was to establish a center in which neuroscience would be studied at all levels from the molecular to behavioral.
Currently, the CMBN houses eleven research teams that are at the forefront of Neuroscience research. The researchers of tomorrow are being trained at the CMBN in the graduate program in Behavioral and Neural Sciences, and introductory courses and summer internships for undergraduate students are also offered.
