- Center for Alzheimer's Research Care, Imaging, & Research
One of the center's major goals is conducting research to better understand the causes of Alzheimer's disease and related memory disorders. Research at CACIR focuses on neuroimaging, clinical trials to examine the effectiveness of new drugs and treatments, and studies that examine the clinical features and pathophysiology of Alzheimer's and related memory disorders.
- Cutaneous Nerve Laboratory
The Cutaneous Nerve Laboratory is a CAP approved, clinical diagnostic neurology lab that specializes in the evaluation of small fiber sensory neuropathy through simple skin punch biopsies.
- Headache Physiology Lab
The Brennan Lab mission is to understand the mechanisms of migraine and post-traumatic headache. These related disorders are commonly understood as ‘only’ headache, but they are much more, involving disruptions in all the senses, activation of stress responses and for many patients a transition to a chronic pain state.
- Pulst Genetics Laboratory
The Pulst Lab is involved in multiple projects that include the study of spinocerebellar ataxia type 2, Parkin mutations, neurofibromatosis type 2, and other genetic discovery.
