The Center for Neurogenetics studies the influence of genes and gene expression on the development of neurological disorders in children and adults. As part of the Feil Family Brain & Mind Research Institute, the center brings together clinicians, basic scientists, pathologists, molecular biologists and computer scientists. These researchers collaborate to better understand the genetic components that underlie disorders such as spina bifida, epilepsy, schizophrenia, autism and dementia. The center also works with families to uncover hereditary risks for neurological diseases and treats patients with the best available therapies. Educational opportunities, which are largely run through the Feil institute, include a research clinic, translational neurogenetics conferences and tailored clinical fellowships.
