There are aproximately 25 laboratories at the MassGeneral Institute for Neurodegenerative Disease. Led by physician-scientists, certain labs collaborate and share resources on key projects to speed up the pace of discovering new treatments, and one day, we trust, find cures.
The Albers’s Laboratory uses the olfactory system of mice and humans to elucidate early pathologic events of neurodegeneration.
Brian Bacskai's laboratory uses sophisticated optical techniques to address fundamental questions in Alzheimer's disease research.
The research goal of Dr. Berezovska's lab is to study the cellular and molecular mechanisms of Alzheimer's disease pathology.
MIND Informatics develops and applies integrative computational methods in biomedical and brain research, working with leading clinicians and researchers to understand and cure neurological disorders.
Marian M. DiFiglia, PhD, is investigating the role of the HD mutation in the molecular and cellular events leading to neurodegeneration.
My laboratory is interested in the development and characterization of animal models of human neurodegenerative diseases, particularly Cerebral amyloid angiopathy (CAA), Alzheimer and Parkinson diseases.
Dr. Gomez-Isla investigates the neurobiology of normal aging, Alzheimers, and other dementias.
The Gomperts lab investigates Parkinson's disease, dementia with Lewy bodies, and Alzheimer's disease
Led by Dr. Hersch, the Laboratory investigates Huntington’s disease using transgenic mouse models and human brain tissue. Research also includes HD clinical trials.
The Hyman lab focuses on research in neural system failure underlying cognitive loss in Alzheimer’s disease.
The Kazantsev lab is focused on discovering therapeutic agents for Huntington's and Parkinson's diseases using high throughput screening, rational drug design, and medicinal chemistry lead optimization.
Molecular research of neurodegeneration in Alzheimer’s disease (AD) focused on identifying cellular pathways regulating the generation of the toxic beta-amyloid protein (Abeta).
Dr. Robert Moir's research focuses on the biochemical and cellular mechanisms involved in neurodegeneration in Alzheimer's disease and aging.
We provide Neurology investigators with a wide array of behavioral tasks for comprehensive assessment of motor and cognitive functions, anxiety, and social interactions in mice.
The laboratory focuses on identifying epigenetic alterations that regulate gene expression in brain disorders, and investigates whether these alterations are heritable across multiple generations.
The Schwarzschild lab targets three purines—adenosine, caffeine and urate—in pursuit of improved therapy for Parkinson’s and related neurodegenerative diseases.
Bakhos Tannous, PhD – Research focus in molecular Imaging, gene transfer technologies and high throughput screening aiming at finding novel therapeutics against brain tumors.
Dr. Rudolph Tanzi is carrying out genome-wide association screens to identify novel genes associated with AD and autism spectrum disorders.
