Research Labs

The Motor Neuron Center runs a wide variety of research laboratories noted below. Our faculty members are recognized as world leaders in motor neuron research and related disciplines and have made major advances in understanding motor neuron disease. Research in these laboratories ranges from the investigation of molecular mechanisms of neuronal death to devising therapeutic strategies for diseases such as spinal muscular atrophy (SMA) and amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS). 

Przedborski Lab

The research conducted in my laboratory is geared toward unraveling the molecular basis of neurodegeneration and devising therapeutic strategies to hamper the processes that cause neuronal death, the source of many debilitating disorders.
