Neuroscience Research Priority Area

Neuroscience Research Priority Area Logo

 The Neuroscience Research Priority Area (NRPA) supports a "collaborative matrix," bringing together diverse groups of investigators, trainees, and research groups from more than 8 colleges at the University of Kentucky. The NRPA builds upon and leverages existing strengths and relationships and provides infrastructure and support to both promote research collaborations and to raise internal and external recognition of the depth of neuroscience-related research at the university with the goals of growing extramural support for our programs, increasing academic productivity, enhancing recruitment of faculty and trainees, and providing new knowledge to address the needs of the citizens of the Commonwealth and beyond. The NRPA is a critical component of the overall strategy for the Kentucky Neuroscience Institute (KNI).
