As human beings, we experience and interact with the world through our brains. Learning more about how the brain functions and how genes and the environment influence the brain is important for all people.

OHSU is a national leader in neurosciences clinical care (patient care) and research. We have more than 400 healthcare providers and researchers treating people with diseases of the brain, teaching the next generation of healthcare professionals and scientists and doing research. We are the top receiver of research funds at OHSU, and much of this funding goes to studies that will directly improve people’s lives. At the OHSU Brain Institute, we’re building on our scientific knowledge and achievements to make OHSU an internationally known neurosciences research center.
