MU Center for Translational Neuroscience
The University of Missouri Center for Translational Neuroscience is home to research teams working together to translate neuroscience discoveries into clinical treatments for patients.
The center occupying 9,000 square feet of new lab space on the seventh floor of MU's Medical Sciences Building serves dual purposes – both as a home base for research teams and as the site of four new core facilities for neurosurgery, cell culture, neurobehavior and imaging analysis.
The center's basic scientists and clinical researchers study not only age-related neurodegenerative diseases such as Alzheimer's and Parkinson's but also brain tumors, infectious diseases of the nervous system, autoimmunity and neurodevelopmental disorders.
As we build our own interdisciplinary community of collaboration in neurosciences research, our faculty experts also serve as consultants and support teams for scientists involved in related research. We look forward to working with your team toward innovative treatments and therapies.
