    Mission Statement

    The Neuroscience Division is an integral part of the Department of Neurology and effectively promotes interaction between clinicians and basic scientists towards achieving goals of the Department. Our mission is to develop resources to support research and training programs and apply knowledge gained through fundamental research on neuronal/glial structure and function to develop novel drug and peptide delivery strategies and therapies for neurodegenerative diseases and cancer.
