Division of Neuropathology
The Division of Neuropathology at Johns Hopkins is committed to diagnosing and curing diseases affecting the brain. With the explosion in knowledge of basic neurobiology, and the advances in understanding of the genetic, molecular and cellular bases of diseases, there has been no time of greater promise for discovering how to treat patients suffering from conditions affecting the nervous system. The Johns Hopkins Division of Neuropathology has made numerous important discoveries in complex diseases including brain tumors, traumatic brain injury, Alzheimer's disease and amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (Lou Gehrig's Disease), and is advancing the use of stem cells for treating some of these conditions. Our Division also contains an extremely strong group of clinically trained neuropathologists expert in the microscopic diagnosis of brain tumors, neurodegenerative diseases, and forensic lesions. Patients or physicians can consult with or obtain a 2nd opinion from our faculty.
