Abstract : The LSU Neuroscience Center is a comprehensive, multidisciplinary, and transdepartmental entity that unites fundamental neurobiology and the clinical neurosciences in the common goal of elucidating the workings of the brain and contributing to the treatment of currently incurable diseases of the nervous system. The objective of the present program is to find solutions to neuroscience-related problems of interest to the U.S. Army Medical Research and Development Command. The program is focused on exploiting novel neuroprotective strategies that lead to prevention of and repair after neural injury. Converging approaches using state-of-the-art tools of cell biology, neurochemistry, neuroimmunology, neurophysiology, neuropharmacology, molecular biology and virology are proposed. Over the next four years, this program aims to: (1) carry out seven research projects in the basic and clinical neurosciences; (2) expand central, shared facilities with the addition of highly specialized instrumentation not currently available to our scientists; (3) develop laboratory space to permit the physical consolidation and coordination of this research effort; and (4) institute a coordination unit to monitor, facilitate, and administrate the cooperative research programs, as well as to meet the associated budgetary, human resources, facilities, and communications needs for the attainment of the proposed program goals.
