Whether it's a groundbreaking clinical trial focused on preventing Alzheimer's or basic science research investigating the basis of neurodegenerative disease, our researchers are on a quest to improve the lives of individuals with neurological disorders.

Within the Department of Neurology, our research scientists are focused on understanding, treating and preventing neurological disorders. We seek to accomplish this through a wide range of research activities, including through clinical trials to understand new potential treatments and through basic scientific research focused on systems, cellular and molecular neuroscience approaches.
