Kazantsev Drug Discovery Lab
Kazantsev Drug Discovery Lab

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.

Kovacs Lab, Neurobiology of Disease Laboratory at MIND
Kovacs Lab, Neurobiology of Disease Laboratory at MIND

Molecular research of neurodegeneration in Alzheimer’s disease (AD) focused on identifying cellular pathways regulating the generation of the toxic beta-amyloid protein (Abeta).

Moir Lab
Moir Lab

Dr. Robert Moir's research focuses on the biochemical and cellular mechanisms involved in neurodegeneration in Alzheimer's disease and aging.

Mouse Behavior Facility at MIND

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.

Sadri-Vakili Neuroepigenetics Laboratory
Sadri-Vakili Neuroepigenetics Laboratory

The laboratory focuses on identifying epigenetic alterations that regulate gene expression in brain disorders, and investigates whether these alterations are heritable across multiple generations.

Schwarzschild Lab - Molecular Neurobiology Laboratory
Schwarzschild Lab - Molecular Neurobiology Laboratory

The Schwarzschild lab targets three purines—adenosine, caffeine and urate—in pursuit of improved therapy for Parkinson’s and related neurodegenerative diseases.

Tannous Lab - Experimental Therapeutics and Molecular Imaging Laboratory
