The Department of Neurobiology at Harvard Medical School is excited to announce

The 50th Anniversary Celebration

1966-2016

Established in 1966, Dr. Stephen W. Kuffler invented a new field called Neurobiology, combining physiology, biochemistry, histology, neuroanatomy, and electron microscopy in a single group. It was the first such department in the world, and it created a model of cross-disciplinary research that has characterized neurobiology ever since. The celebration will honor not only the 50th anniversary of the department and its founding members, but will also look back at the development of the department and the field of Neurobiology. Several distinguished neuroscientists and former faculty of the Department will be presenting their work in the context of the history of the department, and we invite all current and past members of the department, as well as interested members of the neuroscience community to attend.
