Created in the centenary year of IISc, the Centre will leverage the existing expertise at the institute in engineering, mathematics, physics and biology to create a vibrant, interdisciplinary group to address problems that are beyond the capabilities of individual investigators. The Centre will recruit faculty across wide-ranging disciplines to establish a strong program in basic neuroscience. At the same time, it will develop strong links with clinical centres in order to introduce an element of translational research.
