The Clinic also participates in the provision of specialized electrodiagnostic services (electromyography and nerve conduction studies) in the EMG lab. Clinic E includes the Neuroscience Laboratory mainly involved in translational neurological research, as well as the CING Mouse Facility, which serves as national core facility providing services to researchers from CING and other institutions.
The mission of the Clinic E is to provide excellent neurological care to CING patients, to perform original internationally competitive high impact research and to offer high quality education in clinical and basic neurological science.
The objectives of the department are to:
(a) To provide high quality neurological clinical care to CING patients
(b) To develop internationally competitive basic and translational research projects focusing on disease models and new therapies for neurological disorders
(c) To provide undergraduate and postgraduate education to medical students, neurology residents and fellows, neuroscience, biology and human genetics students, in the fields of clinical neurology, electrophysiology, as well as in basic and translational neuroscience.
