Discoveries for a Better Tomorrow
‘Glitch’ that Causes Mental Disorders - Dr. Guo-li Ming
Dr. Guo-li Ming studies the biology behind brain cells, with the hope of developing new strategies for treating patients with mental disorders.
How Stem Cells May Treat Brain Injuries - Dr. Hongjun Song
Dr. Hongjun Song develops new technologies to study stem cells in humans and animals, in hopes of one day harnessing our own regeneration potential.
The Science Behind Memory Formation - Dr. Richard Huganir
Unique synapses within our brains encode new memories. See how studies on the molecular basis of memory formation can help researchers find new therapies for Alzheimer’s, age-related dementia, post-traumatic stress disorder, schizophrenia and autism.
Fusion Spinal Surgeries – Timothy Witham, M.D.
Timothy Witham, M.D. works with his team of researchers at the Johns Hopkins Neurosurgery Spinal Fusion Laboratory. Their goal is to eliminate fusion failure, which occurs when the bone and the spine do not properly grow and fuse together.
Huntington Disease and Its Effects – Dr. Jee Bang
Dr. Jee Bang and her research team are currently running numerous clinical studies on Huntington’s disease. The studies involve testing new experimental drugs that treat symptoms, all while looking for new targets for therapeutics.
The Effects of Huntington’s Disease – Dr. Christopher A. Ross
Dr. Christopher Ross and his lab are studying the complementary approach to treat Huntington’s disease by developing mouse models, which have progressive symptoms that are similar to those of patients.
Regulating the Brain’s Inflammatory Response – Dr. Norman James Haughey
Dr. Norman Haughey and his research team study how to regulate the brain’s inflammatory response to HIV infections, traumatic brain injury and nerve degenerative conditions such as Alzheimer’s disease.
TomorrowsDiscoveries: Motor Neuron Disorders – Dr. Charlotte Jane Sumner
Dr. Charlotte Jane Sumner cares for patients with genetic motor neuron disorders, such as spinal muscular atrophy and Charcot-Marie-Tooth disease, which until recently lacked any treatments that address the underlying causes.
#TomorrowsDiscoveries: Why Do People Walk the Way They Do? – Dr. Ryan Roemmich
Dr. Ryan Roemmich and his research team are trying to understand important factors that cause people to walk in certain ways and then use this information to improve their rehabilitation.
#TomorrowsDiscoveries: Treating Back and Neck Pain – Dr. Nicholas Theodore
Dr. Nicholas Theodore and his research team focus on using advanced technologies to improve the outcomes and alleviate the suffering of our patients struggling with back and neck pain.
