Abstract:

The LSU Neuroscience Center is a comprehensive, multidisciplinary, and trans-departmental entity that unites fundamental neurobiology and the clinical neurosciences in the common goal of elucidating the workings of the brain and contributing to the treatment of currently incurable diseases of the nervous system. The objective of this program is to find solutions to neuroscience-related problems of interest to the US Army Medical Research and Development Command. The program is focused on exploiting novel neuroprotective strategies that lead to prevention of and repair after neural injury. Converging approaches using state-of-the-art tools of cell biology, neurochemistry, neuroimniunology, neurophysiology, neuropharmacology, molecular biology and virology are ongoing. This programs yearly activities have included 1 seven research projects in the basic and clinical neurosciences 2 the expansion of central, shared facilities with the addition of highly specialized instrumentation not currently available to our scientists 3 the development of laboratory space to permit the physical consolidation and coordination of this research effort and 4 the operation of a coordination unit to monitor, facilitate, and administrate the cooperative research programs, as well as to meet the associated budgetary, human resource, facility, and communication needs for the attainment of the program goals.
