The Campus Biotech offers two biosafety levels neurosurgery areas (BSL-1 and BSL-2) to ensure the safety of users allowing them working with class II organisms when needed.

The neurosurgery facility is dedicated to surgery on nervous structures such nerves, brain or spinal cord and includes surgery preparation rooms and surgery rooms fully equipped to perform stereotaxic and routine ophthalmic surgeries.

In addition, a standard electrophysiology workstation is also provided to perform in vivo neural recordings (intracellular recordings, patch clamp).
