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).

Neuroscience Online Seminar Series


To support their students and continue meaningful research discussion, a handful of UK professors and researchers seized the opportunity to build world-class online seminar series, focused in three different areas of neuroscience: Alzheimer's Afternoons led Dr. Lance Johnson (UK) and Dr. Rik van der Kant (VU Amsterdam), The Spinal Cord Injury Research Speaker Series led by Dr. Warren Alilain (UK), and the Traumatic Brain Injury Speaker Series led by Dr. Adam Bachstetter(UK), Dr. Josh Morganti(UK), and Dr. David Loane (Trinity College, UMaryland). For all the information, including how to sign-up to participate, follow the link above.
