Supporting Neurosciences

“We are on the verge of a whole new approach to neurological therapeutics, where specific proteins might be targeted for modification or removal using infusions of biologic compounds. It's extremely exciting to see these home-grown discoveries bearing fruit and being applied in practice at UC San Diego Health.”

-James Brewer, M.D., Ph.D, Chair, Department of Neurosciences

Neurosciences is an area where many new discoveries have only recently been uncovered, often due to the development of new tools in imaging and genetics. It's a time of unprecedented potential to translate these discoveries toward benefitting the lives of patients.

You can help make our work possible in a variety of ways:

  • Multi-year pledges
  • Outright gifts
  • Commemorative gifts
  • Planned giving such as trusts and bequests
  • Endowed giving
