Funded Research Projects

NeuroHealth | Postdoctoral Fellowship
Lead Researcher(s): Laura Marquardt
Spinal cord injury (SCI) is a debilitating condition that affects young adults between the ages of 16 and 30, which leads to lifelong medical and financial burdens. SCI still results in a decreased quality-of-life and lower life expectancy for patients. This is due in part to the lack of a...
NeuroHealth | Seed Grant
This interdisciplinary collaboration across psychiatry and radiology will develop and validate a new method to study the mechanisms underlying ketamine’s biochemical action and its effects on dissociation and treatment effectiveness.
NeuroHealth | Research Accelerator
This project is developing non-invasive transcranial magnetic stimulation as a way to modulate human neural circuits to treat psychiatric disease.
NeuroHealth | Research Accelerator
StrokeCog is focused on cognitive problems after stroke. The team leads a study aimed at identifying if neuroinflammation plays an important role in the development of post-stroke cognitive decline.
NeuroHealth | Seed Grant
By measuring the aggregation of Tau protein in healthy older adults as well as those with Alzheimer's disease dementia using positron emission tomography imaging combined with high-resolution magnetic resonance imaging, this team hopes to predict who is at most risk for dementia in the future.
NeuroHealth | Big Idea
The Stanford Brain Rejuvenation Project is an initiative by leading aging researchers, neuroscientists, chemists, and engineers to understand the basis of brain aging and rejuvenation and how they relate to neurodegeneration.
NeuroHealth | Postdoctoral Fellowship
Lead Researcher(s): Zoi (Zoe) Samara
    More than 60 million people in the United States currently suffer from a serious mental illness, and the associated financial, productivity and human suffering costs are only projected to rise in the near future. Patients who suffer from serious mental disorders, such as depression,...
NeuroHealth | Postdoctoral Fellowship
Lead Researcher(s): Alan Ceaser
The ability to ignore distracters is impaired for individuals with psychosis. This impairment negatively impacts treatment effectiveness and the ability of individuals with psychosis to function fully. Recent work has shown that the striatum, a brain region beneath the surface of the brain, is the...
NeuroHealth | Big Idea
Creating a center for neurodegeneration research focusing on brain maintenance and regeneration, and the role of the immune system in these processes.
NeuroHealth | Postdoctoral Fellowship
Lead Researcher(s): Christoph Leuze
The aim of this project is to improve the accuracy and reliability of dMRI fiber tracking through comparison with a gold standard that unambiguously relates the measured water diffusion patterns to the underlying tissue structure.
