Event description

Description

Neuroscience research at Boston Children's Hospital spans multiple departments and disciplines, integrating basic studies of the nervous system with translational and clinical research endeavors. Researchers are investigating key processes in nervous system development, function and repair, with the primary goal of applying this knowledge to disorders of the nervous system that affect children and adults.

At the forefront of innovation, Boston Children's investigators have spun-out several companies in the last decade and continue to develop technologies to address unmet needs for neurology patients, including diagnostics, drugs, and behavioral therapies. Excitement has been building in the field, with industry and academia building research programs for a variety of brain, nervous system, and muscular disorders. But these endeavors are risky business, with high attrition rates and long timelines for drug development.

We invite you to learn more about Boston Children’s research in neuroscience, and to discuss how to advance new therapies through powerful industry/academic collaborations.
