Neurological and Psychiatric Diseases Research

More than 50 Faculty have research interests towards understanding the neural substrates of neurological and psychiatric diseases. One of the major strengths of our Program is the broad range of basic and clinical research accessible to Graduate students because of the large number of neuroscience faculty part of clinical departments. The proximity of Emory Hospital and Emory Clinic are major assets that contribute to the successful development of translational research. The Departments of Psychiatry and Neurology comprise more than 30 Faculty who combine basic and clinical research to understand the neurochemical changes that underlie psychotic and neurological disorders.

Emory is acknowledged as a leader in the study of the pathogenesis, pathophysiology and experimental therapeutics of Parkinson's and Alzheimer's disease and mental disorders. These research areas include a broad range of projects that span from basic in vitro and in vivo mechanistic studies in cell culture and animal models to clinical studies in patients. The success of Faculty in these research areas has been recognized nationally by the development of three national Center Grants.
