NBRC Courses

Updated on: Feb 25, 2013

The Department of Biotechnology established National Brain Research Centre (NBRC) in Gurgaon for brain research, to consolidate, network, and undertake basic research of high caliber in neuroscience and establish linkages with national/international organizations involved in neuroscience research.

Research at NBRC is conducted by bringing together scientists working in different disciplines into the main stream of neuroscience. NBRC  focues primarily on those areas of neuroscience, which have not yet been adequately addressed, including the emerging interdisciplinary issues.

NBRC has collaborations with RIKEN Brain Science Institute, Japan, National Institute of Mental Health (NIMH), USA, Pavlov Institute, Russia, Institut National de la Santé et de la Recherche Médicale (INSERM), and France. In  2006, Montreal Neurological Institute of McGill University (MNI), Canada and NBRC were declared sister institutes.
