Biomedical Anthropology and Neurosciences Laboratory
This facility consists of biosafety level 2/3 laboratories with a focus on cellular
and molecular mechanisms of neurodegeneration in late onset disorders such as ALS,
Parkinson's and Alzheimer's disease, and infectious and chronic diseases of unknown
etiology. It includes a suite of three labs for tissue culture and PCR, light microscopy
and molecular biology. A separate sequencing laboratory complements and supports the
research in these as well as other molecular laboratories in the program.
