Welcome to the La Jolla Interdisciplinary Neuroscience Center Cores website. This website will provide you with information regarding the NINDS Institutional Center Core Grant Program, and about the consortium that makes up the La Jolla Interdisciplinary Neuroscience Center Core program.

The cores and their services are available to La Jolla neuroscientists. Core services are available to NINDS-supported neuroscience projects from local investigators as well as young neuroscientists prior to obtaining their first NIH-funded grant.


The mission of the NINDS Core Grant is to foster collaborative, interdisciplinary science, thus bringing in new technologies to neuroscience research.

What is the La Jolla Interdisciplinary Neuroscience Center Cores?

Our NINDS Center Core Grant supports centralized resources and facilities shared by investigators with existing NINDS-funded research projects. Our Center is composed of three research cores, each of which will enrich the effectiveness of ongoing research, and promote new research directions. The three Core facilities support Electrophysiology, Neuropathology/Histology, and High-Throughput/High-Content Chemical and Genomic Library screening.

The Core Grant for Neurosciences Research is led by Stuart Lipton, M.D., Ph.D., Director of the Center for Neuroscience, Aging and Stem Cell Research at the Sanford-Burnham for Medical Research Institute.
