    Welcome to the website for the Department of Neurobiology and Anatomical Sciences at the University of Mississippi Medical Center! We are a vibrant department committed to excellence in research, teaching and service, and are currently in the midst of a major period of growth and rejuvenation.

    As a focal point for the expansion of neuroscience research at UMMC, we are expanding our commitment to all branches of neuroscience by actively recruiting research-intensive faculty at all levels. Current research in the department includes sensory and motor systems, neural development, circadian rhythms, neurendocrine mechanisms and the neurobiology of reward and motivation. We are also building translational bridges with our clinical partners, as well as helping to enlarge the Medical Center’s graduate program in Neuroscience.

    At the same time, we are redefining the academic discipline of anatomy, having recently established a Division of Clinical Anatomy that will oversee new graduate programs at the Master’s and doctoral level. These programs will train the future educators of anatomy. The Division of Clinical Anatomy will also pursue research into developing new approaches to teaching the various disciplines of anatomy.

    We invite you to explore our department, its people and activities as presented in these pages. Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions, and please stop by and visit if you are in Jackson!
