Letter from the Director

Welcome to the Institute for Translational Research (ITR). Here at ITR, we are focused on identifying precision medicine approaches to dealing with brain diseases like Alzheimer’s disease, Parkinson’s disease, Down syndrome, Dementia with Lewy bodies and others. We believe that, through novel collaborative science, together we can bring better tools to health care providers helping patients and families. ITR is an interdisciplinary research group with ongoing collaborations with leading scientists from across the U.S. and abroad. At ITR, we are all “part of something bigger than ourselves.”
