Research at the Center for Translational Neuromedicine

The Center comprises three principal research groups:

The Goldman Laboratory – Division of Cell and Gene Therapy

Focuses on neural stem and glial progenitor biology, particularly in the context of neurological disease.

The Nedergaard Laboratory – Division of Glial Disease and Therapeutics

Focuses on astrocytic physiology and pathology, as well as on cerebral blood flow and its glial regulation.

The Hirase Laboratory – Division of Neuron-glia Circuitry

Focuses on astrocytic signaling and its impact on neural circuit dynamics and behavioral performance.

The Kjaerby Laboratory - Division of Sleep-Arousal State Transitions

Focuses on neuromodulator systems and their impact on sleep micro-architecture and restoration.
