About the Institute

Directed by David Anderson, the Seymour Benzer Professor of Biology and a Howard Hughes Medical Institute Investigator, the Tianqiao and Chrissy Chen Institute for Neuroscience draws upon Caltech's strengths across a broad range of disciplines. It brings together faculty from throughout Caltech's academic divisions, catalyzing interactions within a diverse community of researchers from neuroscientists and biologists to economists, chemists, physicists, computer scientists, social scientists, and engineers. The work of these researchers will be focused through the Chen Institute at Caltech's six interdisciplinary research centers:

The Chen Institute at Caltech will ultimately be housed in a new state-of-the-art building that will be named in honor of the donors and function as the nexus for neuroscience research at Caltech.
