KSLA12 - Dr. Elizabeth Disbrow, Director of the Center for Brain Health at LSUHS, talks about the signs of Parkinson's Disease and the opportunity for African-Americans to participate in a new study at the Center.
The Center for Brain Health (CBH) strives to expand neuroscience-related education, provide comprehensive care for brain disorders, attract young specialists and pioneering clinical trials to North Louisiana, and develop a core of federally funded investigators necessary to compete for large scale research funding. The CBH received full approval by the Louisiana Board of Regents in December 2019.
Our goals are to expand neuroscience-related education, provide comprehensive care for brain disorders, attract young specialists and pioneering clinical trials to North Louisiana, and develop the foundation of federally funded investigators necessary to compete for large scale research funding.
The Center for Brain Health and LSU Health Shreveport are committed to the “achievement of distinction and national recognition for selected basic science and clinical programs that contribute to the body of knowledge and practice in medicine.” Neuroscience is a rapidly expanding field that has become fundamental to education, patient care and research. However advances rely on a multidisciplinary team, integrating biology, engineering and medicine from molecular genetics to human brain imaging. Clinicians and neuroscientists at Ochsner LSU Health Shreveport Academic Medical Center, Overton Brooks VA Medical Center, LA Tech and LSU Health Shreveport propose to create such a team, where cutting-edge technology is used to provide top-quality education, deliver state-of-the art care and conduct pioneering research that will lead to the development of new therapies for brain disorders.
