Anschutz Medical Campus
The NeuroTechnology Center (NTC) at CU-Anschutz is a partnership between the University of Colorado School of Medicine and member Departments with significant interests in neuroscience research. The missions of the NTC are:
The overarching idea behind the NTC is that novel technologies have revolutionized how we study the nervous system, all the way from the molecular to the in vivo/systems level, and our core facilities and faculty should be at the cutting-edge of developing and implement novel technologies to advance our understanding of the nervous system and to develop new treatments for nervous system disorders.
The NTC also engages in educational and outreach activities by hosting/co-hosting and administering research seminars, retreats, and symposia in partnership with the Neuroscience Graduate Program, the Rocky Mountain Neuroscience Group, and the NSF-funded Rocky Wearable Microscopes Summit. In addition, the NTC is a sponsor of the Summer Research Training Program and a supporter of the NINDS-funded BRAiN summer research program that provide research internships on the campus for undergraduate students from groups historically underrepresented in science.
NTC membership is defined at the Department level, with Departments joining the NTC by participating in joint recruitment of neurotechnology-focused faculty with the NTC. These NTC recruitments are envisioned as collaborative, interdisciplinary, and possibly interdepartmental; allowing recruitment of neurotechnology-focused researchers across disciplines. In return, researchers in NTC member Departments are eligible for discounted user fees for the NTC cores. Current NTC member Departments span multiple basic science and clinical disciplines.
