    three dimensional imaging and non invasive activation of neural circuits among others It is a real pleasure to join The Rockefeller University in announcing their new Kavli Neural Systems Institute says Robert W Conn president and CEO of The Kavli Foundation Rockefeller is unrelenting in its focus on excellence and independent thinking and is well known for its non traditional structure and approach to research The new institute will provide Rockefeller s stellar faculty with unique unrestricted funding to explore their best ideas early and move ahead towards solving the most challenging problems in neuroscience problems that must be understood at their most fundamental level if we are to address the many debilitating diseases and disorders that affect the mind The Kavli NSI aims to draw on The Rockefeller University s culture of creativity and excellence to solve the most challenging problems in neuroscience such as how the astonishing array of cell types in the brain arise from a single fertilized egg how the brain processes information so rapidly and how the brain and nervous system control complex behaviors The long term goal is to reach an integrated understanding of the brain as a neural system that supports complex higher cognitive functions The convergence of neuroscience with such fields as bioengineering nanoscience and computer science as well as mathematics and theoretical and experimental physics will accelerate in the coming decades The impact of this scientific convergence is evident in Rockefeller University s neuroscience laboratories which are seeded with investigators trained in physics engineering and computer science The Kavli NSI will enable Rockefeller scientists to fast track their collaborations with individuals outside of the life sciences It will also provide much needed seed funding that will allow Rockefeller investigators to launch high risk high reward research initiatives Thirty six Rockefeller faculty members will join Kavli NSI Among these will be faculty in the early stages of the careers and members of the Center for Studies in Physics and Biology which was founded by neuroscientist Torsten N Wiesel president emeritus of The Rockefeller University to unite physicists and biologists around common biomedical problems particularly those of neuroscience We re reaching a phase where many of the tools we need to make new discoveries in neuroscience are coming from the physical sciences into biology these include the hard tools or technologies but also conceptual tools Rockefeller s neuroscience labs are in the vanguard of this change and the new Kavli Institute will help us codify this culture says Cori Bargmann Torsten N Wiesel Professor at The Rockefeller University and head of the Lulu and Anthony Wang Laboratory of Neural Circuits and Behavior Bargmann will serve as co director of Kavli NSI with Jeffrey M Friedman Marilyn M Simpson Professor and head of the Laboratory of Molecular Genetics Bargmann studies the relationship between genes neural circuits and behavior in the worm C elegans a model organism in neuroscience She served as co chair of the National Institutes of Health working group for the BRAIN
