Clinical researchers work with laboratory scientists at The Scripps Research Institute and elsewhere to help patients suffering from Parkinson’s, Alzheimer’s, ALS, depression, addictive disorders and other neurological conditions. This powerful collaborative approach brings discoveries from the laboratory to patient bedsides.
Plus, with an active research program, our patients may have access to research and clinical trials that put experimental therapies to the test.
Recent Scripps studies in the field of neurology include:
- Carotid artery atherosclerosis
