The Institute has three major areas, Biochemistry and Biophysics, Cellular and Molecular Neurobiology, and Functional and Systems Neuroscience, in which varied fields such as nanotechnology and behavior work on an interdisciplinary basis. Although each program area works with specific skills and abilities, the Institute´s modernization will support the aim of creating a highly collaborative and efficient research environment. As citizens and researchers, we know the development of our nation depends on scientific development.
