Bill Mobley and Pavel Belichenko

Recent tools and technologies are helping us learn more and more about the brain and what happens when it functions well, and when it doesn’t.

Our lab focuses on two main areas of research:

  • The biology of brain circuit formation during development
  • The causes of Alzheimer’s disease in people with Down syndrome

Read more about our basic research.

Clinical Trials

The information we gain from this research is leading to clinical trials of adults with Down syndrome. Some of these are conducted at our Adult Down Syndrome Clinic, including a trial to improve cognition for people with Down syndrome ages 18-30. Find out more.
