NeuroRestorative Therapy

Organizers: Albert Kim and Fumihiko Urano Read More


To restore neurological function in patients suffering from diseases that impact the human nervous system through the development of novel multidisciplinary therapeutic strategies.

1) Development and implementation of clinical trials for patients with neurological diseases using regenerative medicine-, cell-, drug-, and virus-based approaches
2) Development of patient tissue-derived models of human diseases

Target disease areas
Neurodegenerative diseases
Spinal cord injury
Brain tumors

Specific neurological diseases of interest include: Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, Huntington’s disease, Parkinson’s disease, Wolfram syndrome, spinal cord injury, and brain tumors (glioblastoma, meningioma, pituitary tumors)
