About the Clinical Neuroscience Program (CNP)
The CNP is comprised of clinical research groups organized within a multitude of branches, sections, units and clinics
focusing on disease mechanisms and treatment of a variety of neurological disorders. The research methods within each
group range from molecular biology, biochemistry, cell biology, immunology, genetics, pharmacology, neurophysiology,
imaging to clinical trials. The program offers a unique environment for clinicians and physician-scientists working within
the NIH Clinical Center, the nation’s largest hospital devoted entirely to clinical research and a unique training
environment for the next generation of clinician-scientists. As a whole the program works to expedite the translation
of scientific discoveries into new approaches for diagnosing, treating and preventing neurological disease and disorders.
A large number of clinical studies are currently ongoing in a variety of neurological disorders; details of which can
be accessed through www.clinicaltrials.gov.
