Expanding knowledge and exploring new treatments and cures

Research in the department spans clinical, basic, and translational programs, with annual research expenditures exceeding $27.7 million in FY23. There are over 200 active clinical research protocols spanning our divisions, including clinical trials, observational studies, and other investigator-initiated research. Basic and translational research programs aim to understand the mechanisms of neurological disorders, identify new biomarkers, and develop better therapies, including drug development collaborations with Southern Research. In addition to advancing science and improving care for patients in Alabama and across the world, these programs provide training opportunities for residents, fellows, and students who are the next generation of researchers in cutting-edge approaches.
