LAB Logo

In the Morimoto Lab we are dedicated to researching the underlying causes of neurodegenerative diseases. We are not a clinical lab and therefore not educated to give medical advice or referrals to people who are coping with Huntington's, Parkinson's, Alzheimer’s, familial ALS and other genetic diseases of like characteristics. We can offer our website as a resource to gather information. You will find many links to organizations devoted to helping patients and their families deal with these diseases. A few of these organizations are:
