About Us Mission, Goals and Challenges
The University of Florida's Center for Translational Research in Neurodegenerative Disease, known as the CTRND, is a state-of-the-art, multidisciplinary research center focused on the discovery, development and evaluation of future treatments and diagnostics for degenerative central nervous system conditions including Alzheimer's disease, Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS), Frontotemporal Lobar Degeneration (FTLD), Parkinson's disease and stroke.
The CTRND’s mission is to discover the earliest molecular triggers of neurodegeneration and use this new information to develop and evaluate future treatments and diagnostics for degenerative central nervous system conditions including Alzheimer’s disease, Parkinson’s disease, stroke and other brain disorders.
