Neurology Research Program

The epidemiological, translational, and basic laboratory research conducted by the Division of Neurology targets many conditions that cause injury or death of brain cells, and seeks to discover new therapies to prevent neural tissue injury. Clinical studies are investigating the effects that different factors such as environmental, genetic, and viral infections have on the developing brain and nervous system. The Spinal Muscular Atrophy Biomarker Study is providing insights into how babies with spinal muscular atrophy develop compared to healthy babies. Learn more about the Neurology Research Program.
