The Center for Neurological Restoration (CNR) is at the forefront of clinical research in the areas of Parkinson disease, Huntington disease, other movement disorders (such as tremors and normal pressure hydrocephalus), functional neurosurgery (such as deep brain stimulation, spinal cord stimulation, shunts, pumps, and high frequency ultrasound), headache, and facial pain.
We are Ohio’s only designated Parkinson Disease Center of Excellence and Atypical Parkinsonism Center of Care, and Northeast Ohio’s only Huntington Disease Center of Excellence. We also are amongst the largest clinical programs in movement disorders, functional neurosurgery, and migraine/other forms of headache. These designations place research at the core of our mission.
Currently, our center offers clinical trials examining the efficacy and safety of pharmacological, non-pharmacological (such as exercise therapy), and surgical (such as deep brain stimulation and gene therapy) treatments. In collaboration with colleagues from Cleveland Clinic Lerner Research Institute, several translational research projects are underway in neurophysiology, genetics, transcranial stimulation, and biomarkers.
The Center for Neurological Restoration is among the largest research infrastructures in the entire Cleveland Clinic enterprise with its own research administration and management team, outcomes research team, research and clinician scientist staff members, and more than two dozen full time research coordinators.
