Current basic research strengths at the Institute include human systems physiology, gene regulation and non-coding RNAs in stroke, biomaterials approaches to enhance CNS repair, and neuroinflammation and glial biology in health and disease. The clinical facilities of the Institute, including adult and pediatric neurology, neurosurgery and neuropsychology, are located immediately adjacent to the research division. Current clinical strengths include neurological and neurosurgical approaches to brain tumors, stroke, sleep disorders, Parkinson’s disease, neuro-ophthalmology and neuro-otology.
