Swartz Foundation to Establish Computational Neuroscience Center at CSHL

NEW YORK, Feb. 10 (GenomeWeb News) - Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory said today that it would open a new center devoted to computational neuroscience with "multi-year, multi-million dollar" support from the Swartz Foundation - a neurobiology research foundation established in 1994.

The Swartz Foundation will create the Swartz Center for Computational Neuroscience at CSHL, where the lab's senior neuroscience faculty will study system neurobiology and computational neuroscience.

The CSHL center will join a network of six Sloan-Swartz Centers for Theoretical Neurobiology, founded by the Sloan Foundation and currently directed and supported by the Swartz Foundation, located at the University of California at San Diego, the Salk Institute, California Institute of Technology, New York University/Courant, University of California at San Francisco, and Brandeis University.
