The W. M. Keck Foundation Center for Advanced Studies in Neural Signaling

In December 1990, the W. M. Keck Foundation awarded a grant of $2.7 million to researchers in the Departments of Pharmacology and Physiology and Biophysics to establish the W. M. Keck Foundation Center for Advanced Studies in Neural Signaling. This interdisciplinary center was developed to explore how nerve cells acquire, store and transmit information. During the past few years, the Confocal Imaging Center, the Calcium Imaging Facility, the Center for Optical Studies of Retinal Receptors, and the Mouse Genetics Facility were established and staff hired and trained.

These facilities are located on the 5th floor of the K-wing and are available to affiliate researchers.
