Hello Friends,

Welcome to our new website!

We’re excited to share news about our program, as well as some of our plans for the future. It starts with our new name. 

NeuroNetwork for Emerging Therapies.

But this is much more than a name change. This year, we celebrate the 20th anniversary of my research program, formerly called the Program for Neurology Research and Discovery. As we look back, it’s clear that we have accomplished so much in the last 20 years. We have furthered our understanding of the causes of neurological diseases, through:

  • New discoveries that have advanced our knowledge base,
  • Advancements in technology, which have opened new ways for us to think about, analyze and apply data-driven medicine,
  • Partnership with our patients who donate their samples and their time, to help us better understand neurological disorders.

Today, our work requires many diverse minds, medical disciplines and great institutions working together, collaborating, creating, investigating, discovering and, ultimately treating patients in new ways.

Some say it takes a village. We say it takes a Network.

So, as we begin a new decade, it seems like the perfect opportunity for us to change the name of the program to the NeuroNetwork for Emerging Therapies to better reflect our vision and goals for the coming decade.

  • We are unwavering in our work to accelerate scientific discovery to alleviate suffering in neurological diseases.
  • We will collaborate with a passionate, innovative, multi-disciplinary team at the forefront of discovering emerging therapies for the treatment of neurological diseases, both within the University of Michigan and Michigan Medicine, and at universities worldwide.

All of this and much more is highlighted throughout our new website. Please take a look, and come back often, to follow the updates about our work.

We are confident that with the brightest minds working together, the NeuroNetwork for Emerging Therapies is where scientists create cures.
