The Neuroregeneration Program

The Neuroregeneration program focuses on studies to understand the basic mechanisms involved in neurodegeneration or neurologic injury in Parkinson’s disease, stroke and Alzheimer’s disease. Scientists use human induced pluripotent stem cells (iPSCs), which can develop into any cell type in the body, to study these disorders. The work is relevant to many additional disorders of the nervous system, such as autism, schizophrenia, major depression, bipolar disease, stroke, peripheral nerve disease and chronic pain. Some studies are working to crystallize or recreate proteins that may play crucial roles in cell death, develop stem cell-based therapies for neurologic disease and understand how cells communicate in Parkinson’s and Alzheimer’s diseases.
