Our faculty are dedicated to finding treatments to repair the brain and spinal cord.

Faculty & Research Labs

Stroke Neuroimmunology Laboratory
We closely examine stroke pathology to address the gap between preclinical and clinical settings for translational medicine.
Clinical Laboratory for Early Brain Injury Recovery
We aims to improve hand function in children with cerebral palsy (CP).
Laboratory for Mitochondrial Biology and Metabolic Dysfunction in Neurodegeneration
We aim to discover the underlying cause of age-related neurodegenerative diseases to develop effective therapies.
Circuit Repair Laboratory
We study the function of cortical motor networks after spinal cord injury.
Laboratory for Systems Neuroscience of Vision
We focus on revealing how neural circuits perform computations underlying visual perception and learned sensory behavior.
Laboratory for Visual Disease and Therapy
We focus on advancing treatments for visual dysfunction and vision loss in adults and children.
Laboratory for Neural Redox Biology and Homeostatic Transcription
We aim to understand adaptive programs that facilitate the brain's ability to combat injury and to foster repair.
Laboratory for Cell Fate Specification and Circuit Development
We aim is to identify molecules that can be recruited to restore functions or to take on new functions.
Laboratory for Language Development and Recovery

Our research aims to identify therapies to promote brain, language, and cognitive development in children at risk for learning disabilities.

Laboratory for Axonal and RNA Biology
We focus on sensory neuron axonal biology, on how local events within the axon are important in driving normal and pathological behaviors. 
Laboratory for Neural Connectivity Development in Physiology and Disease
We are interested in formation, function, and regeneration of motor circuits controlling locomotor and skilled movements.
