One of the five research institutes comprising UHN, Toronto Western Research Institute (TWRI) is home to the research programs associated with the neural and visual sciences, musculoskeletal disease and urban and community health priority programs. Neuroscientists here explore the function of the nervous system as they develop treatments for spinal cord injuries, cerebral ischemia, vascular malformations, brain tumours, neurophthalmologic disorders and neurodegenerative diseases such as Alzheimer's disease and Parkinson's disease.
The Hodaie Lab is part of the TWRI. More information on the lab can be found at http://www.hodaielab.com/. – less
