The causes of many chronic neurological diseases can be traced to faulty genes. For some conditions, such as Huntington’s disease, the culprit is a single gene. But the genetic factors underlying other common conditions, such as Alzheimer’s disease and Parkinson’s disease, still remain unclear.
Researchers at UCLA are working to find solutions to these challenges with one of the country’s first dedicated neurogenomics research programs.

Our history of neuroscience research innovation dates back to 1959. We have a long-standing track record for advancing brain disease care and outcomes. Many of our researchers have played key roles in discoveries that have revolutionized the diagnosis and treatment of brain diseases such as:
Participating in CNRC research allows patients to take part in advancing care for their condition. Most UCLA Neurology patients are eligible, and enrollment is ongoing. For most patients, participating is as simple as providing an extra blood sample during an already-scheduled lab visit. Find out more about participating in neurogenomics research >
