The NINDS Intramural Research program is one of the largest scientific communities supporting research programs in basic, translational, and clinical neurosciences. Our principal investigators study a broad range of areas including channel biophysics, synapses and circuits, neuronal development, integrative neuroscience, brain imaging and neurological disorders.
The NINDS training programs are vital to the success of our intramural laboratories. NINDS fellows participate in all aspects of neuroscience research, from basic science to clinical trial studies. To support our future leaders in the neurosciences, we offer an excellent training and mentoring environment through a wide range of activities and programs that support the professional needs and career development of students, health professionals, and research scientists.
