Neurodegenerative Diseases

Led by Robert Baloh, MD, PhD, the Neurodegenerative Diseases Laboratory's goal is to understand mechanisms of neurodegenerative diseases including amyotrophic lateral sclerosis and peripheral neuropathy using human disease genes as our guide, in an effort to develop effective treatments for these disorders.

The Baloh Laboratory is affiliated with the Board of Governors Regenerative Medicine InstituteCenter for Neural Science and Medicine and the Department of Neurology.
