The Division of Neurology has a very active research program. Our faculty members conduct a wide range of research from basic molecular and genetic studies, animal models of diseases, drug discovery, human physiological and imaging studies, clinical trials (all phases) to clinical epidemiology and health services research. This research covers all major subspecialities in neurology including dementia, movement disorders, stroke, multiple sclerosis, epilepsy, sleep, pain and neuromuscular diseases.
Our faculty have been very successful in publishing world leading research in their fields, and obtaining external grant funding for their research. Residents in our training program are expected not only to learn the practice of neurology but also to learn research methodology from these faculty members. In fact, residents are mandated to do research projects during the course of their training. With the diverse interests of our faculty in different specialties across the division, residents have the opportunity to pursue their research interests in virtually any topic in neurology.
