McKnight Brain Institute

The MBI is developing new and enhancing existing initiatives and programs aimed at translating diagnostic neuroscience to therapeutic applications for all neurological disorders.

New multidisciplinary core facilities are being constructed along with new laboratories that will offer our scientists and physicians access to state-of-the-art facilities for studying, understanding and treating the normal and diseased central nervous system. With the recruitment of gifted basic science and clinical investigators, working along with established and new working groups focused on aging brain plasticity, brain cancer, Parkinson’s disease, Alzheimer’s disease, dystonia, stroke, demyelinating and other neurological disorders, our growth in these research areas will lead to discoveries and new approaches for neurological repair in the very near future.
