The Brain Trauma Lab is aimed at learning how to better treat the millions of children with brain trauma and similar problems, now and in the future.
Research & Clinical Trials
The Brain Tumor Stem Cell Lab develops novel therapeutic strategies for glioblastoma through a better understanding of the biological and molecular characteristics of glioblastoma stem cells
The Cognitive Neuroscience Lab probes the mechanisms by which individual neurons communicate locally and across cortical areas, and investigate new approaches for reconstituting the line of communication across areas disrupted within the CNS
The Membrane Biology Lab studies ATP-hydrolyzing enzymes that control sodium, potassium and calcium movements
The Neural Prosthetic Lab seeks to improve the effectiveness of CNS-based neural prosthetics by understanding how and why neurons respond to electric stimulation.
Research in the Translational Brain Tumor Immunology Lab focuses on the development and evaluation of novel therapies for brain tumors.
The Visual Prosthesis Lab is working to create a means to restore sight to the blind by sending signals from a digital camera directly into the brain.
Transforming Medicine Through Innovation
Research at Massachusetts General Hospital integrates the full spectrum of "bench to bedside" discovery. Laboratory scientists work collaboratively with clinicians to make discoveries and turn them into treatments, diagnostics and devices that improve our quality of life.
