Department of Neuroscience and Regenerative Medicine32

Founded in 1993 by Dr. Howard Rasmussen (formerly as the Institute of Molecular Medicine and Genetics), the Department's goal was to promote multidisciplinary research and teaching excellence in both basic biomedical and clinical science. This mission continued under the directorship of Dr. Robert Yu between the years 2000 to 2009. Since 2009 the Department has been headed by Dr. Lin Mei. Our faculty study a variety of fundamental questions ranging from neurodevelopment, functions of the nervous system and regenerative and reparative medicine, using a broad repertoire of experimental approaches.

The Department is also a major contributor to Augusta University’s Institute of Regenerative and Reparative Medicine, a multidisciplinary consortium whose mission to improve and restore function to injured and degenerating tissues of the human body. The Department places a strong emphasis on translational research with collaborations with multiple clinical departments including NeurologyPsychiatry, Orthopaedic SurgeryNeurosurgery and Medicine.
