Centers of Excellence

Facilitating interdisciplinary research among faculty from colleges and departments across the University
Center for Brain, Behavior and Cognition
Bringing together researchers from a broad range of disciplines — including psychology, biology, entomology, physics and engineering — to explore how neural processes underpin animal and human cognition and behavior
Center for Cellular Dynamics
Supporting research in cytoskeleton and intracellular transport, cellular changes during development and disease, cell-cell communication and interactions, and live imaging
Center for Chemical Ecology
Bringing together researchers from the life, physical and agricultural sciences to explore the role of chemistry in predator-prey, parasite-host, herbivore-plant, virus-vector, and intraspecific interactions
Center for Comparative Genomics and Bioinformatics
Bringing together laboratories applying bioinformatic and experimental approaches to find functional sequences within genomic DNA and assign function to proteins
Center for Computational Proteomics
A consortium of interdisciplinary scientists who collaborate with experimentalists to answer questions related to the fundamental aspects of proteins
Center for Eukaryotic Gene Regulation
Fostering collaborative, interdisciplinary research into fundamental gene regulation processes and their impact on cellular and developmental biology
Center for Medical Genomics
Bringing together researchers in medicine, genomics, molecular biology and statistics to advance basic genomic research and translate that research into new diagnostic, therapeutic, and preventive medical strategies
Center for Molecular Immunology and Infectious Disease
A collaborative and multidisciplinary group committed to developing a dynamic training and research environment around current topics in immunology and infectious disease
Center for Molecular Investigation of Neurological Disorders
Facilitating research collaborations on neurological and neuropsychiatric disorders such as Alzheimer's, autism, epilepsy, depression, and schizophrenia
Center for Molecular Toxicology and Carcinogenesis
Developing and expanding opportunities for research and education in toxicology and carcinogenesis at Penn State
Center for Motor Control
Integrating the neural, biomechanical, cognitive, and clinical sciences for the study of action
Center for Neural Engineering
Facilitating interdisciplinary research collaborations between faculty in the College of Engineering and College of Science at University Park and the College of Medicine in Hershey to better understand, repair, replace, enhance and treat the diseases of neural systems
Center for Nutrigenomics
Bringing together Penn State researchers using cutting-edge technologies to understand molecular-level interaction between nutrients and other dietary bioactives with the genome
Center for Reproductive Biology and Health
Faculty who are deeply committed to the improvement of reproductive health and function through integration of fundamental and applied research and dissemination of knowledge
Center for RNA Molecular Biology
Focusing on understanding the function of systems involving ribonucleic acids (RNA) at the molecular level
Center for Statistical Genetics
Offering an interdisciplinary forum for convening geneticists, statisticians and software engineers in a cohesive and comprehensive team
Center for Systems Genomics
Integrating variation in DNA sequence, structural variation, gene expression, metabolomic, epigenetic, and proteomic data, along with the environment, to explore and dissect the genomic architecture of complex traits, leading to improved understanding of the biology and etiology of disease.
