THOMAS J. ANASTASIO SYSTEMS NEUROBIOLOGIST I am an associate professor in the University of Illinois Department of Molecular and Integrative Physiology and a full-time faculty member of the Beckman Institute. My main research interest is in Systems Neurobiology, which I define as the application of conceptual and computational methods to complex and multilevel problems in neurobiology. I am also involved in teaching, writing, and technology transfer.
