Department of Neurology Research Focus

Our interdisciplinary team of investigators collaborated to tackle some of the most confounding and disabling medical conditions.

Our innovative discoveries are fueled by well-funded interdisciplinary collaborations. These partnerships accelerate the development of therapeutics and allow us to deepen our understanding of brain function and the processes that go awry in neurological diseases.
