The research activities of the SKL of Molecular Neuroscience are directed towards investigating the important fundamental questions in the nervous system. The laboratory aims to further strengthen research capabilities in six core areas:
(i) Neuronal signal transduction pathways
(ii) Synapse development and plasticity
(iii) Regulation of neuronal survival
(iv) Neurodegenerative diseases
(v) Learning and memory
(vi) Drug discovery and development
Knowledge obtained from this basic neuroscience research will help to unravel the mechanisms of various neurological diseases, thereby providing important clues on the discovery and development of drugs that would retard progression or alleviate symptoms of the disorders.
  The State Key Laboratory of Neuroscience aims to become one of the world’s leading research hub in neuroscience research. From Bench to Bedside - Towards The Treatment of Debilitating Neurological Disorders Through The Discovery of Novel Neuro-Drugs.
