The Neurosciences Center at Brigham and Women’s Hospital has a long history of scientific discoveries that have substantially advanced and improved neurological care for patients—both locally and beyond. For example, we were the first hospital to perform brain tumor surgery with the guidance of intra-operative magnetic resonance imaging. And, we’ve established one of the largest neuroscience intensive care units in the world, as well as a comprehensive brain tumor program. We’re also at the leading edge of finally understanding the underlying mechanisms of Alzheimer’s disease—and orchestrating the largest ever clinical trials for promising new treatments to modify Alzheimer’s disease progression.
Yet, while the Neurosciences Center is providing advanced treatments and therapies for all manner of diseases of the nervous system, many patients and families continue to be devastated by the impacts of innumerable neurological and psychiatric diseases for which effective treatments are still lacking. Disorders of the brain and nervous system are among the leading causes of disease burden worldwide—from Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s to stroke, epilepsy, spine pain, and depression, to name a few.
We are leveraging new technologies to improve patient care and outcomes:
We’re proud that the Neurosciences Center at Brigham and Women’s Hospital is playing an integral role in driving the development of new treatments, preventions and cures for diseases of the nervous system. Here at the Neurosciences Center, more than a thousand neuroscientists, physicians and others are leading a significant portfolio of major research initiatives—including clinical research efforts with promise for patient application in the near term.
Philanthropic support is absolutely critical to the Neuroscience Center’s ongoing progress toward understanding the root causes of diseases and developing new ways to treat and prevent them. It is often early philanthropic support that gives rise to new ideas and major new research directions.
