The Center for Excellence in the Neurosciences facilitates student and faculty research and collaborations with researchers outside the University.
Pain Education Collaborative
The Center for Excellence in the Neurosciences, along with UNE’s Center for Excellence in Collaborative Education (CECE), brings together groups of health care professionals, scientists, educators, scholars and students who share a passion for transforming pain prevention, care, education and research.
The Center of Biomedical Research Excellence for the Study of Pain and Sensory Function was established in 2012 through funding from the National Institute of General Medical Sciences (NIGMS). The Center’s mission is to significantly contribute to the scientific understanding of the neurobiology of chronic pain, facilitating the discovery and development of novel therapies.
Human Nature Project
Founded by David Livingstone Smith in 2012, and funded by UNE's College of Arts and Sciences, the Human Nature Project draws on the best work in both the humanities and the sciences to shed light on human nature, and to use this knowledge to address some of the most pressing problems facing humanity today—problems such as war, genocide, xenophobia, anthropogenic climate change, and environmental degradation.
The Center for Excellence in the Neurosciences provides research opportunities for UNE students at both the undergraduate and graduate levels.
