Molecular and Cellular Neuropathology

The Molecular and Cellular Neuropathology Program, under the direction of Steven E. Arnold, MD, is a translational research program that conducts neurobiological investigations of behavior, cognition, and severe mental illnesses across the lifespan. The CMNP employs a diverse array of approaches including: examination of neural tissues from adolescents, adults, and the elderly, as well as mouse and cell culture models; the anatomic, pathological, biochemical, and molecular biological methods; and analytic approaches. It has also developed a unique protocol for conducting olfactory epithelial biopsies in living subjects to obtain neurons for molecular studies and to grow them in culture for experimental studies.
