In addition to the basic science efforts in the laboratory of Dr. Burns, there are several labs that conduct research on topics relevant to the ataxias. These labs are located in the Center for Neurogenetics under the direction of Dr. Laura Ranum and the Powell Gene Therapy Center under the direction of Dr. Barry Byrne. Collaborative efforts are also available with many other labs at the McKnight Brain Institute and other centers around the campus.
