In addition to the research and scholarly activity opportunities within the clinical rotations above, research electives or collaborations may be arranged through several additional programs located across FAU's campuses.
The Brain Institute supports research, education and community outreach, with efforts spanning all of the FAU campuses. The Brain Institute administrative home is on the FAU MacArthur campus in Jupiter, Florida that also houses the Harriet L. Wilkes Honors College, the Max Planck Florida Institute for Neuroscience and the Scripps Florida Research Institute.
The Brain Institute supports state-of-the-art research and innovative educational activities of more than 100 neuroscience faculty-level investigators located at FAU and affiliate research centers, and is the sponsor for the FAU Neuroscience Student Organization. Collectively, we seek to unlock the secrets of brain development, function and plasticity and how the mechanisms uncovered can be compromised to drive devastating brain disorders such as Autism, Schizophrenia, Depression and Alzheimer’s Disease.
FAU Healthy Aging Institute offers a number of programs and services to support research and innovation. The Institute for Healthy Aging and Lifespan Studies (I-HEAL) is dedicated to the advancement of health through pioneering research and practical application. The I-HeAL team is leading the way in redesigning the healthcare infrastructure to create novel intervention programs to improve the care of older adults with dementia and their caregivers, leading to improved care confidence and mobility, delayed nursing home placement, reduced hospital re-admission and decreased health care costs.
Scripps Florida is an academic research facility with investigators in six of the institute's 15 departments: Cancer Biology, Chemistry, Immunology and Microbial Science, Metabolism and Aging, Molecular Therapeutics, and Neuroscience, as well as the unique Translational Research Institute, which includes the Advanced Technologies and Drug Discovery divisions. While the focus of basic scientific research is to understand the mechanisms that lead to disease and its potential treatment, the Translational Research Institute seeks to identify new biochemical targets for drug development, and to optimize and further develop these drug candidate lead compounds.
Part of the prestigious Max Planck Society based in Germany, MPFI is the first and only institute of its kind in North America. Situated in the new biosciences cluster in scenic Palm Beach County in South Florida, MPFI provides a vibrant, collaborative environment where scientists are provided generous ongoing support to conduct high impact research at the cutting edge.
