Oregon Health & Science University is a national leader in neuroscience research and clinical care, and ranks in the top 1% among academic institutions in the National Institutes of Health support for basic neuroscience research. The OHSU Brain Institute (OBI) was established in 2006 to build on this tremendous strength in neurosciences.
OBI includes 12 departments in the Schools of Medicine and Dentistry and nine research institutes. It was organized to advance understanding of the treatment and prevention of nervous system diseases by promoting interdisciplinary research in basic and clinical neurosciences. This enhances OHSU's ability to conduct research, provide world-class health care, and tell the OHSU neuroscience story to the public.
OBI's vision is to transform basic neuroscience discoveries into new treatments, bringing better health care to Oregon and beyond.
