About the Neuroscience Research Center

The Medical College of Wisconsin's Neuroscience Research Center was founded in 2010 with the goal of enhancing neuroscience research at the Medical College of Wisconsin. The Center's overarching goal is to use a team approach to tackle neurological and psychiatric disorders.

Philanthropy plays an important role in advancing the work of the Neuroscience Center and the patients who receive its benefits. Your gift will support research that moves us one step closer to understanding complex and devastating brain disorders such as Alzheimer's and dementia, Parkinson's disease, ALS (Lou Gehrig's disease), multiple sclerosis, epilepsy, and schizophrenia, among others.
