Welcome to the Center for Biomedical Neuroscience at the University of Texas Health Science Center at San Antonio! The growth and development of Neuroscience as a discipline at the UTHSCSA paralleled the growth of Neuroscience on the national stage. The 90's were declared the 'Decade of the Brain' by President George Bush, and in that decade, membership in the Society for Neuroscience doubled, from 13,000 to nearly 30,000 members. In 2001, the Center for Biomedical Neuroscience was formed to serve as an umbrella organization for all neuroscientists and neuroscience-related activities on our campus. The mission of the CBN was clear - to enhance and promote all teaching, research, service and outreach activities related to neuroscience at the UTHSCSA. Today, the CBN has over 100 members from 5 basic science and 12 clinical departments in the Medical School, Dental School, and Research Imaging Institute. The CBN promotes the rational development of neuroscience on our campus; recruits high caliber graduate and post-graduate students; develops programs for education and professional development of trainees at all levels; increases public awareness of issues and research in neuroscience; and provides a focus at the UTHSCSA for private and industrial donors interested in supporting this discipline. I welcome you to explore our web site, to learn more about our field and our organization. This is Neuroscience; this is the CBN!
