The mission of the Neurosciences Research Center at the BWH Brigham Research Institute (BRI) is to enhance communication, encourage collaborations, improve research infrastructure to benefit BWH researchers studying the nervous system and respective disorders at the molecular, cellular, anatomical, translational and functional levels.
The Neurosciences Research Center brings together researchers from the Departments of Neurology, Psychiatry, Radiology, Anesthesiology and Medicine. These departments pursue breakthroughs in the treatment, prediction and prevention of brain disorders such as multiple sclerosis, tumors, stroke, epilepsy, psychiatric illnesses and Parkinson’s and Alzheimer’s diseases. The Center’s collaborative nature promotes the discovery of new treatments and accelerates them from the laboratory bench to the patient’s bedside.
Together, we plan to capitalize on the historical achievements of the BWH neuroscience community to create a level of interdepartmental cooperation and leverage the multi disciplinary strengths that exist at BWH. The center strives to better understand the nervous system in health and disease thereby promoting the discovery of new medical treatments for nervous system disorders.
