Brain Science Research Consortium Unit (BSRCU)

The research productivity of the University of Maryland School of Medicine (UMSOM) faculty is exceptional, and is one of its most formidable pillars of strength. Among the fastest growing research enterprises in the country, the brain science research currently conducted at UMSOM is emblematic of this strength. Innovative findings and approaches dovetail with the most up-to-date techniques available, pushing the boundaries of our current understanding of the brain.
 
The Brain Science Research Consortium Unit (BSRCU) is a mammoth endeavor to coalesce these strong individual research programs in order to focus on common goals.
 
Our experience enables us to ask forward-thinking questions: we’re leaders of a nation-wide schizophrenia center, renowned neurosurgeons and pharmacologists, and addiction researchers – among other roles. We have studied and treated hundreds of thousands of patients, and our goal is to advance brain science by setting moonshot goals. We’re here to find answers.
 
Membership is open to all: more than 300 researchers and clinicians are currently members. For more information, click on one of the following:
