Did you know one in four of us will have a stroke in our lifetime? What about the staggering personal and economic consequences of drug use and addiction, with over $500 billion annually in social costs? These are two key areas driving our research as we continue to deepen our understanding of strokes, and brain hemorrhages, as well as the neurobiology of substance abuse, to shape strategies designed to improve prevention, treatment and recovery.
Today we are continuing our nationally known stroke research, and collaborating with others across our system, to treat a wide range of neurological diseases, including movement disorders, and dementia. The creation of our new Neuroscience Research Center will build upon the highly collaborative work of our neuroscience teams, including:
- Department of Neurosurgery
- Department of Neurobiology and Anatomy
- Department of Neurology
- Psychiatry and Behavioral Health
- Neuroscience Clinical Trials and Innovations Center
- Department of Physiology and Pharmacology
We are an integrated team focused on finding new ways to treat ALS, epilepsy, brain tumors and many more. Our researchers and clinicians are passionate about continuing to design and develop new clinical trials and improved treatments to accelerate advances in neurological care.
