The F.M. Kirby Neurobiology Center, together with the Neurobiology Program at Boston Children’s Hospital, is the largest basic neuroscience research enterprise at a U.S. hospital. It incorporates basic and translational neuroscience research, focusing primarily on developmental neurobiology.

Led by Director Clifford Woolf, MB, BCh, PhD, the Kirby Center's mission is to conduct world-class basic and translational research focused on the developing nervous system, both to understand how it functions and to find treatments for disorders and injury of the nervous system. Its members aim to understand--at the genetic, molecular, cellular and systems level--how the circuitry of the nervous system is established and functions, and how disturbances caused by genetic mutations, environmental inputs and injury can produce intellectual and other neuro-developmental disorders. We believe success is contingent on the highest quality multidisciplinary basic research, with close interaction between basic scientists and clinicians.
