The Johns Hopkins Medicine Brain Science Institute’s mission is to solve fundamental questions about brain development, function and disease and to translate this knowledge into effective therapies to support brain health and healing.
 

Pedersen Brain Science Institute Programs

  • Neurocognition

    The Neurocognition Program studies complex neural systems and behaviors — including touch perception, motor control, social behaviors, reward, mood and decision-making — to inform the development of therapeutics for nervous system disorders ranging from autism to addiction.

  • Neurodegeneration

    The Neurodegeneration Program studies the fundamental causes of neurodegenerative disorders — including Alzheimer’s disease, amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, Huntington’s disease and Parkinson’s disease — with a mission to develop interventions to mitigate and cure them.

  • Drug Discovery

    Johns Hopkins Drug Discovery works with researchers across the university to discover and develop tomorrow’s therapeutics for a wide range of human disorders.

  • International Arts + Mind Lab

    The International Arts + Mind Lab is a multidisciplinary research-to-practice initiative that is accelerating the field of neuroaesthetics. Its mission is to amplify human potential by addressing intractable problems in health, well-being and learning using the arts.
