Research Studios

Leveraging UVA expertise in neuroscience and leadership in advancing large and complex clinical trials, the Brain Institute offers innovative “studios” to enhance and refine the conduct of cutting-edge neuroscience research at UVA. A research studio, which is based on a model from the Vanderbilt Institute for Clinical and Translational Research, brings together research experts from diverse academic disciplines to provide feedback on a project or area of research to an investigator or project team. UVA faculty have participated in studios to refine hypotheses, receive feedback on proposals, and to refine clinical trial implementation for projects in nuclear medicine, autism, addiction, obesity and radiochemistry.
