Posted by Laura Braden on Fri, Apr 24, 2015

Over the past 15 years, the Neuroscience Institute at the University of Cincinnati has grown immensely. Starting out with only a few researchers and physicians, the center has continuously grown in amount of faculty members, and funding received. Since its founding, more than $60 million has been donated to the institute, helping it become the leading neuroscience research and care center in the Cincinnati area.

$14 million in funding to Cincinnati Neuroscience Institute

Recently, another $14 million was donated to this nationally acclaimed life science research center to help establish a new state-of-the-art facility that will study new treatments for different neurological disorders. 

This newly donated $14 million, from the James J. and Joan A. Gardner Family Foundation, will be used to help establish a new location for the center that will be even more beneficial to research and patient care. The UC Neuroscience Center is a collaboration between the College's of Health and Medicine. 

Santa J. Ono, the President of the University of Cincinnati, explained that "this gift will create a new home for UC Neuroscience Institute that will allow our medical students, faculty and staff to learn and teach in a cutting-edge environment."

Currently, there are 11 Centers of Excellence located at the UC Neuroscience Institute. These centers include: 

  • Epilepsy Center
  • Neurosensory Disorders Center
  • Gardner Center for Parkinson's Disease and Movement Disorders
  • Memory Disorders Center

"The new headquarters will transform the patient experience beyond measure," explained president of UC Health, Richard Lofgren. "UC Neuroscience Institute is already a preeminent provider of patient care for neurologic disorders and mental conditions and a leader in neuroscience research. This gift will further elevate its efforts and improve the outlook for the millions affected by neurological disorders."
