Neurology Research Programs

The Department of Neurology at Brigham and Women's Hospital is a group of multidisciplinary biomedical research laboratories which has its central objective in the application of a wide range of current biological methods to the elucidation of the pathogenesis and treatment of certain chronic, unsolved neurological diseases: multiple sclerosis, Alzheimer's disease and Parkinson’s Disease. In addition to clinically-related research many of the laboratories have an additional focus directed at understanding basic human and animal immunology.
