The brain is one of the largest and most complex organs in our body. The UTSA faculty includes 40 active researchers in brain health, an extensive initiative that includes research in neurodegenerative disease, traumatic brain injury, regenerative medicine, stem cell therapies, medicinal chemistry, neuroinflammation and drug design. UTSA researcher Dr. Charles Wilson received a $5 million grant from the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services. Dr. Wilson's research focuses on the brain region involved in voluntary motor behavior, the basal ganglia.
