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.



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
