The Next Fifty Years of Neurobiology

The Neurobiology Course at the Marine Biological Laboratory, celebrating 50+ years in 2022, proudly announces their campaign to raise $50,000 to sustain the next 50 years of the course. Established in 1970, the course provides intensive and immersive training in neurobiology with a particular focus on cellular and molecular mechanisms that govern nervous system function in health and neurological disorders. By carrying out original research projects, participants are empowered to formulate rigorous experiments, to address scientific questions that push the boundaries of modern neuroscience, and to build an international network of peers and colleagues. A goal of the course is to empower pre- and postdoctoral students to approach scientific inquiry using the most appropriate advanced technologies available to query neural function using molecular biology, cellular electrophysiology, and imaging.

Since inception, over 600 students have been immersed in this intensive training experience in Woods Hole, working side-by-side with internationally recognized experts using state-of-the-art technologies. Help support the next 50 years of students with a gift in celebration of this reunion.

If, in the opinion of the Board of Trustees of the MBL, it eventually becomes impossible, impracticable, or inadvisable to use the funds for the foregoing purpose, the Board may in its sole discretion apply the income to such other MBL purpose or purposes as will most nearly accomplish the donor’s intention and at the same time permit appropriate and continuing recognition of the commemorative character of this gift.
