Rutgers University launches neuroscience consortium
Date:7/8/2013

harness the incredible talent once Robert Wood Johnson Medical School in Piscataway and New Jersey Medical School in Newark became part of Rutgers.

The addition of the medical schools was the impetus for getting neuroscientists out of their laboratories and into a room where they could discuss research, resources, funding, brain and nervous system collaborations, and how to best move forward.

Hanson, who helped Rutgers acquire a full-body magnetic resonance imaging scanner that uses a powerful magnet and radio waves to measure blood flow changes to the brain, realized just how important this was after introducing himself at an exploratory gathering of about 40 neuroscientists in December. When he mentioned the brain imaging center, Hanson heard one person immediately ask, "Really, Rutgers has a scanner?"

Innovative Collaborations

Neuroscientist Robin L. Davis, acting director of Rutgers' Brain Health Institute on the New Brunswick Campus, has led the charge in creating the neuroscience consortium. She says this comment is a prime example of why change is needed.

"This new consortium will coordinate efforts across Rutgers University and our two new medical schools that will not only establish innovative research collaborations, which are certainly important, but also will have an educational mission to reach out to our internal and external community and let them know just who we are," says Davis, who is also the director of auditory aging research at Rutgers. She studies the auditory neurons that are vulnerable to aging, their loss ultimately leading to hearing disorders and deafness.

There are more than 350 neuroscience researchers working from bench to bedside within the university's departments and institutions and its two medical schools. They are studying human learning and decision making; language development; sensory perception; the impact of traumatic brain injury; and the degree to which dis
