To an untrained observer, the electrical storm that takes place over the brain's neural network seems a chaotic flurry of activity. But as neuroscientists understand it, the millions of neurons are actually engaged in a sort of tightly choreographed dance, a tango of excitatory and inhibitory neurons
As a result of a two-year demolition and reconstruction project to accommodate the Stem Cell and Regenerative Biology Department (SCRB), the interior has been transformed into one of the University's greenest and most efficient laboratory spaces. The project, the first to uitilize Harvard's 2009 Green Building Standards to guide project development, recently received the Faculty of Arts and Sciences' (FAS) first Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) Commercial Interiors Platinum certification - the highest rating possible - from the U.S. Green Building Council.
The Department of Stem Cell and Regenerative Biology is proud to present the inaugural class of its Harvard College concentration, Human Developmental and Regenerative Biology (HDRB). The Class of 2012 is the first group of students to join the HDRB concentration.
