Upcoming research Projects:

Patient research takes time to get started. Please check back here for active human research projects for which you can become involved. We expect to have several studies starting in the next year.

Please remember to sign up to eventually donate your brain to science (I have!). There is no better donation and we need your help. For more information: https://medicine.uiowa.edu/inbc/donors
