Research

The Department of Neurology at UT Southwestern is firmly committed to neurological and neuroscience research. Our large faculty, comprising basic, clinical, epidemiological, and translational investigators, maintains a sizable and diverse portfolio of research grants and contracts that span the spectrum of neuroscience research. These efforts are further enhanced by research conducted by faculty associated with the Center for Alzheimer’s and Neurodegenerative Diseases and the O’Donnell Brain Institute. 

We invite you to explore our research endeavors, which utilize a range of approaches from molecular and cellular neurobiology, to neurogenetics, neurophysiology, advanced neuroimaging research, population-based science, biomarkers research, outcomes research, experimental therapeutics, and medical device fabrication. Our research is organized by clinical area (listed below), highlighting the efforts by faculty in each of our Departmental Sections.
