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 and Neurology are undergoing transformations like never before, with stunning advances in research and technologies permitting new and highly-promising approaches to neurologic diseases. Philanthropy is essential to driving the innovation and cross-fertilization of ideas that propel discoveries, and its impact is multiplied by our remarkable scientific and clinical environment. Our department, where neuroscientists and clinical neurologists interact in a rich, multifaceted campus, is ideal for outside-the-box thinking. More than ever, generous gifts, both small and large, have the power to help turn promising research into medical revelations that give patients the highest possibility of a cure. 

Donating to the department allows our clinicians and scientists to: 

  • Fuel transformative and disruptive research
  • Deliver developments in innovative and compassionate treatment
  • Lead cutting-edge education of the next generation of neurologists and neuroscientists
Gifts may be made in many ways including, multi-year pledges, outright gifts, endowed gifts, gifts in honor or memory of a loved one, and planned giving such as trusts and bequests.
