Dedicated to building research infrastructure at the University of Mississippi Medical Center (UMMC) and to enhancing the methodological sophistication of the psychiatric neuroscience research endeavors of UMMC faculty, the Center for Psychiatric Neuroscience (CPN) provides access to psychiatrically characterized post-mortem brain specimens, state-of-the-art equipment, cutting-edge technologies and the technical advice of highly trained faculty members who serve as core directors. The CPN Research Resources Cores are funded by the National Center for Research Resources (NCRR), UMMC and the CPN. The sophisticated imaging systems and biotechnologically advanced molecular core resources are provided on a shared-use basis to CPN and UMMC researchers. The CPN Research Resources Cores include the Human Brain Collection Core, Animal Core, Imaging Core, Molecular Biology Core, and Information Technologies Core.
In addition to these scientific resources, the CPN's Information Technology Core maintains a highly secure, centralized electronic database for the Human Brain Collection Core and provides basic computer support for CPN investigators.
