Research & Clinical Trials

Research and Clinical Trials

The research of PMNC investigators spans the entire range of modern neuroscience, from fundamental molecular and cellular studies to translational and clinical research.  A major goal of the PMNC is to promote integrated basic, translational, and clinical research efforts. This is done in several ways, including pilot grant programs, symposia (see also "Education and Training"), and recruitment of faculty. The PMNC also established a Neurobehavior Testing Core that provides services to assay mice for different behaviors. Research collaborations between numerous departments and disciplines allow the PMNC to approach these disorders from multiple perspectives and to more quickly move research from the ‘bench to the bedside’.
