About the Center for Glial Biology in Health, Disease, and Cancer

Fralin Biomedical Research Institute scientists in this center study the role of glia in brain function and neurological diseases, trauma, and brain cancer. Research areas include: the brain's response to concussion and traumatic brain injury, brain cancers, chronotherapeutics and circadian biology, seizures and epilepsy, and Alzheimer's disease.
