Program in Cellular Neuroscience, Neurodegeneration and Repair

General Information

The primary objectives of the Program, which was established in 2006, are to advance basic knowledge of nerve cell biology, to elucidate pathogenic mechanisms of neurodegenerative diseases and to translate such insights into improved therapies. By building on its rich tradition in basic neuroscience and further enhancing this strength, Yale expects the CNNR to function as a productive mechanism for progress toward treating neurodegenerative conditions, such as Alzheimer’s disease, Parkinson’ disease and ALS as well as acute nervous tissue injuries. The CNNR will provide a focus for research in neuronal cell biology and neurodegeneration across the existing Yale neuroscience community and will serve as a catalyst for collaborations in this field across the University and beyond.
