Thank you for your interest in the Motor Neuron Center.
It is certainly the best center worldwide for the study of motor neuron development, and has outstanding potential in the form of groups working on relevant aspects of stem cell biology and animal models of both diseases. In close proximity, internationally renowned clinicians experienced in clinical trials are eager to feed into their programs the latest findings from basic research, and able to provide early-stage consultancy on the feasibility of therapeutic approaches in the clinical setting. The scientific environment for many relevant aspects of biology cell death, axonal regeneration, electrophysiology, chemical biology is outstanding throughout Columbia University. The center provides an unparalleled opportunity to create a continuum of high-level translational research focused on the motor neuron.
Your support of Columbia’s Motor Neuron Center will benefit patients and their families through earlier diagnosis, improved patient care and the discovery of novel treatments. For more information, please call the Columbia University Medical Center Development Office at (212) 304-7203
