From epilepsy to depression to Alzheimer’s, neurological conditions affect almost everyone. And people are desperately seeking solutions for themselves or someone they love. The Neurosciences Medicine (NSM) research program at the DCRI is dedicated to taking bold action to find these solutions.
Duke receives $12.5 million to study children with autism and ADHD
- Duke researchers across disciplines — including psychology, psychiatry, neuroscience, engineering, computer science and public policy — will launch three major projects designed to improve early detection and treatment of children with autism and ADHD.
EEG Coordinating Center
- DCRI’s coordinating center gathers all EEG data from sites around the world. Our faculty team of neurologists and epileptologists adjudicates and analyzes the data. We can serve as the CRO or work with your current CRO for this part of the study only.
DCRI’s Neurosciences Medicine participates at top neurological and psychiatric meetings
around the world.

Neurosciences Medicine Leadership
Daniel Laskowitz, MD, MHS, graduated from the Duke University School of Medicine. After completing his residency at Hospital of the University of Pennsylvania, he returned to Duke to complete his residency in cerebrovascular disease and neurocritical care. Laskowitz's research interests include exploring new therapeutic interventions in the clinical setting of stroke, intracranial hemorrhage, and closed head injury. He is committed to translational research, and has several active clinical research protocols designed to bring the research performed in the Multidisciplinary Research Laboratories to the clinical arena.
