Research & Education

Research is at the heart of the Vickie & Jack Farber Institute for Neuroscience at Jefferson, and it remains a crucial part of our mission. Each department carries out basic, translational, and clinical research designed to understand fundamental mechanisms of the normal and diseased brain. Our specialists translate that understanding into treatments for neurodegenerative and other devastating disorders.

Researchers at the institute share their findings and experiences with other academics and specialists from around the world and work together to treat, prevent, and find cures for all kinds of neurological and spine disorders.

This means more opportunities for NIH funding, new opportunities for research partnerships and sponsors, and ultimately, accelerated breakthroughs in the treatments of neurological disease.
