Research Activities

The Department of Neurology is active in basic and clinical research and receives significant financial grant support from governmental and private sources.

Residents are required to participate in basic science or clinical research supervised by attending staff members. They will present their work to the Department and other interested attendees near the end of their PGY-4 year.
