Giving to Neurosurgery

Transforming Neurosurgical Care for Adults and Kids

Our faculty are providing groundbreaking care and doing breakthrough research. Your gift can impact patients with conditions as diverse as Parkinson’s disease, brain tumors, and scoliosis, including by supporting the education of the next generation of leaders in the field.

It is an exciting time in neurosurgery, and we are at the forefront. We are unraveling the biology of adult and pediatric brain tumors, developing immunotherapies for brain cancer, and translating discoveries into care through clinical trials. We are innovating in minimally invasive surgeries and deep brain stimulation; enabling brain-machine interfaces; and improving detection and repair for life-threatening strokes and brain aneurysms. 

Your gift can keep the momentum strong. You can support:

  • High-risk, high-reward pilot studies to build a pipeline of innovative ideas
  • Research collaborations across disciplines
  • Clinical research and clinical trials  
  • New research and educational opportunities for trainees and early-career faculty
  • Programs that combat burnout and enhance the well-being of our surgical residents

There’s much more. We have been leading the way in developing new therapies for more than 100 years. When something goes wrong in the brain or nervous system, it can rob us of the ability to speak, to feel emotion, to think, to connect with the world. Help us provide hope for millions of people who face these conditions and their loved ones.
