to the Center for Neuroscience Research
The Tufts Center for Neuroscience Research (CNR) was established in 2003 with funding from the National Institute for Neurological Disorders and Stroke (NINDS) and
generous support from Tufts University School of Medicine (TUSM) and Tufts Medical Center.
The primary goals of the CNR are to support neuroscience research efforts and to promote collaborative interactions among neuroscientists at Tufts University and its affiliated hospitals. The CNR is located within the
TUSM Department of Neuroscience; it provides core research services to Tufts neuroscientists and other investigators. CNR-supported core facilities offer services for biological imaging, biophysics & electrophysiology, computational genomics, and animal behavior.
The establishment of the CNR and the operation of the core facilities are greatly aided by support from Tufts University, TUSM, Tufts Medical Center and a continuing center core grant from the NINDS.
- To support the research of neuroscience investigators at Tufts University and its affiliated hospitals through support of shared core facilities and research resources.
- To foster collaborative interactions among neuroscientists at all Tufts-affiliated institutions.
- To provide pilot funding for new collaborative neuroscience research projects.
- Four shared core research facilities: Imaging, Genomics,
Electrophysiology, and Behavior.
- Pilot Project Program: provides small grants for new collaborative neuroscience research projects and core grants to pay for the use of CNR core services.
- Annual Research Retreat to which all Tufts neuroscientists are invited.

Citing the CNR in
As an indication of center productivity and its usefulness in neuroscience research at Tufts, it is important that investigators acknowledge use of CNR core facilities and services in their research publications. Please remember to cite the "Tufts Center for Neuroscience Research, P30 NS047243.”
