Our Research

Our researchers harness the collective scientific expertise found across the institution and utilize cutting-edge technologies and resources to deepen our understanding of neurodegenerative and neuropsychiatric disorders. This combination accelerates the translation of discoveries into new ways to diagnose, prevent, and treat these complex diseases.

Research Spotlight

Illustration of a see-through synapse

Scientists have created one of the most detailed 3D images of the synapse, the important juncture where neurons communicate with each other through an exchange of chemical signals.  These nanometer scale models will help scientists better understand and study neurodegenerative diseases such as Huntington’s disease and schizophrenia.
