Neuroscience Research Studies
Neurological disorders affect almost one billion people worldwide. There are more than 600 diseases of the nervous system including stroke, tumors, developmental disorders, metabolic disorders, and hereditary diseases, as well as degenerative diseases. The Translational Neurosciences and Neurotherapeutics Laboratory has established cross-disciplinary collaborative research programs with the goal of improving health care for neurological illness. In addition to the identification and development of new classes of therapeutic compounds targeting neuronal pathways, processes, and proteins, we study stem cell technologies in efforts to reverse neural tissue damage and to recover neurological deficits that eventually can be used as new clinically efficacious regenerative therapy.
