The mission of the Department is to promote multidisciplinary research and teaching excellence in both biomedical and clinical sciences.

The department was founded in 1993 as the Institute of Molecular Medicine and Genetics. We seek to attract outstanding faculty and bright students by creating a welcoming, collegial and collaborative environment to foster success and creativity. Our faculty’s research focuses on a variety of fundamental areas, ranging from neurodegenerative and neuropsychiatric disorders, brain injury, learning and memory, neuroprotection, development, inflammation and regenerative medicine, using a broad repertoire of experimental approaches. Our department is also the home to the Transgenic and Genome Editing Core, which is supported by the Georgia Research Alliance.  

The Medical College of Georgia is the state's only public medical school. Founded nearly 200 years ago in 1828 as the nation's fifth public medical school, the third medical school in the Southeast and the thirteenth in the nation, the Medical College of Georgia has one of the largest class sizes in the country. The medical school works to optimize health care in Georgia and beyond through education, discovery, and service.

When chronic stress activates these neurons, behavioral problems like loss of pleasure, depression result

Scientists have evidence these POMC neurons become hyperactive after chronic exposure to stress, leading to things like depression. When their activity is reduced, so are behaviors that lead to these problems.

Blood pressure drug holds promise for treating PTSD

Scientists at the Medical College of Georgia say it’s time for another look at clonidine.

Subcutaneous fat emerges as a protector of females’ brains

We need to get beyond the kind of simplistic idea that every sex difference involves hormone differences and hormone exposure, MCG scientists say.

Molecular changes in the brain in the aftermath of a traumatic event may help explain long-term susceptibility or resilience

Some mice just seem more susceptible to a lasting impact from a major and/or chronic stressor.
