Translational and Clinical Neuroscience

Translating basic research discoveries into clinical application is a major challenge in all fields of biomedical science today. In neuroscience, the need for new therapeutics to treat developmental, degenerative, psychiatric, and other types of disorders is particularly great.

Translational neuroscientists at NYU examine how basic neuroscience findings relate to disease states, test theories of disease progression, and develop novel strategies for putative therapies. In parallel, NYU’s clinical neuroscientists, from specialties such as psychiatry, neurosurgery, radiology, and otolaryngology, apply state-of-the-art approaches in order to provide top-of-the-line care to patients. They work closely with NYU’s Office of Clinical Trials to test new drugs and treatments that will hopefully improve patient outcomes.
