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 | EPFL-Stanford Exchange
Lead Researcher(s): Łukasz Kidziński
Human movement results from the coordination of muscles, tendons, joints, and other physiological elements. While children learn to walk, run, climb, and jump in their first years of life and most of us can navigate complex environments -- like a crowded street or moving subway -- without...
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
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 | Seed Grant
Lead Researcher(s): Elizabeth Mormino, Anthony Wagner
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 | Seed Grant
This project will develop PET ligands to image where and when the earliest microglial changes occur in Alzheimer's Disease to aid in early detection of the disease and development of new therapeutics.
