Director's Message

The beginning of a new year is a time of reflection on events and activities from the past year. More importantly, it is a time for looking ahead to things to come.

In focusing on the school’s theme of seeking to understand some of the fundamental questions in the basic, biomolecular, neurological and behavioral sciences, SISH is eager to share with you news on exciting research, faculty and student accomplishments, and current and future events.

Please join us on our journey of exploration, discovery and learning.
