Neuroscience Center Combines Expertise to Put Discoveries into Practice

(May 2012) The medical school welcomed the new Center for NeuroScience (CNS) last fall. The center is a collection of more than 100 doctors and researchers from a wide array of disciplines working to help translate theoretical science into therapies, treatments and cures for neurological disorders.

“This is an opportunity to do great translational research with a clinical endpoint,” says John Sladek, PhD, director for outreach and development at CNS and professor of neurology, pediatrics and neuroscience. “We will take it from the bench to the bedside. Our goal is to bring together all of the research being done all over this campus.”

The center directors are Diego Restrepo, PhD, a professor of cell and developmental biology, and Ken Tyler, MD, chair of the Department of Neurology. The center was launched with a keynote address from Story Landis, PhD, director of the National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke.
