Give to UC San Diego Department of Neurosciences

Advancing Neurological Therapeutics

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

Partnering with us helps our clinician-scientists elevate their research and provides hope to patients whose illnesses demand new breakthroughs and better therapies. 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.

Neurosciences Excellence Fund

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.
