Currently, the Institute has 19 core independent laboratories and 11 part-time laboratories, with more than 300 people. Graduate students and postdoctoral fellows. The Institute uses the latest advances in molecular and cell biology, imaging, electrophysiology, behavior, and engineering to conduct cutting-edge explorations on how to understand, rebuild, and protect the brain. On May 10, 2018, Tsinghua University's neuroscience discipline entered the top 1% of global research institutions for the first time. In the past ten years, the Institute has not only served as the base for all basic neuroscience and brain research at Tsinghua University, but also cultivated many interdisciplinary collaborations and innovations. The Institute is not only the cornerstone of basic neuroscience research at Tsinghua University, but also an important force in China's brain research. Under the background of the National Fourteenth Five-Year Plan and the China Brain Plan, the Institute will enter a period of high-quality development and move towards a world-class brain institution!
