Welcome to the site of the Neurodevelopmental Biology Unit!

About us

The Developmental Neurobiology Unit is a research unit part of the Biomedical Sciences Research Laboratory hosted at the Universidad Católica de la Santísima Concepción (UCSC). We are located in the city of Concepción about five hours from the main capital in Chile. At this place, we work on elucidating the cellular and molecular mechanisms that control the development and functioning of the cerebral cortex. In this context, our research endeavors aim at contributing to understand the mechanisms involved in a variety of neurodevelopmental disorders.


Postdoctoral position on neurodevelopmental biology

The Biomedical Sciences Research Laboratory at the Universidad Católica de la Santísima Concepción (UCSC) offers the opportunity to develop postdoctoral research on the field of neurodevelopmental biology. The research line in which this position is framed involves the study of the cellular and molecular mechanisms controlling the development of the cerebral cortex and their relevance …


We are always looking for talented people who might be interested in working with us. If you feel strongly motivated to work on neurodevelopmental biology and want to help elucidating the mechanisms of brain development and neurodevelopmental disorders, please get in touch at any time writing directly to aavila@ucsc.cl
