Brain diseases and disorders have devastating effects on patients, their families, and the community.
And the Academic Health Center has the expertise in high-tech imaging, mental health, genetics, and movement disorders to make major advancements through brain science research.
We research stem cell therapies to help stroke and Parkinson’s disease patients. We study how our DNA affects our susceptibility to brain diseases. And we use some of the most powerful imaging techniques in the world to peer deep into the brain.
In doing so, our researchers in the programs of the Institute for Translational Research reduce the toll of devastating brain diseases.
