Neurology: Research

Our neurologists actively participate in clinical trials and have expertise in conducting research in a diverse array of neurological disorders including stroke, epilepsy, myasthenia gravis, peripheral neuropathy, amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, multiple sclerosis and movement disorders.

Our Clinical Research Unit consists of clinical investigators, all with specialty board certifications and faculty appointments at The George Washington University School of Medicine & Health Sciences, a clinical nurse manager, nurse practitioner, research coordinators and research assistants. Our group has combined experience in Phase II, III and IV clinical trials.

Our goal is to promote new understanding in order to alleviate suffering from neurological diseases. We are committed to performing both sponsor-initiated and investigator-initiated clinical trials with the highest standard of scientific rigor and ethical integrity.
