The Bankiewicz laboratory is a translational neuroscience group. We create novel approaches for the delivery of therapeutic agents to specific target regions within the brain to develop effective treatments for brain diseases. Our work can be applied to many neurological diseases such as Parkinson's disease, brain tumors, and Alzheimer's disease. Our research scientists work together to advance our goals and work with a world-renowned group of collaborators. Many of our ongoing projects are described on our research page. Additionally, the media section contains videos, press coverage, and a glossary of common terms used in our research. Please contact us for more information. The image above shows an example of image-guided delivery of gene therapy in a patient with Parkinson’s disease.
