Barriers between fundamental discovery and clinical trials often prevent investigators from bringing new discoveries to patient care. The Brain Institute is supporting translational efforts by providing clinical trials expertise, research administrative infrastructure and facilitating collaboration with industry to conduct novel and early phase clinical trials in stroke, epilepsy, Alzheimer’s, autism and TBI.
