Lab Mission Statement: identify new molecular pathways that link stroke with Alzheimer's disease.
The Hinman Lab focuses on the interface of stroke, cerebrovascular disease, and dementia. There are a number of projects ongoing in the lab that use cutting edge techniques and range from identifying new molecular pathways relevant to this disease interface, as well as drug discovery programs targeting those pathways. The Hinman Lab work on understanding not only preclinical models of stroke and dementia and understanding the pathways, but also how those diseases interact with each other in human patients. A major goal of the lab is to identify reparative pathways that can reduce the burden of these disorders.
