Help us understand the brain - support transformative interdisciplinary research and education in the neurosciences at Stanford.

Why Stanford?

Stanford has long been a leader in basic research, engineering, and medicine and has stayed ahead of the curve by uniting scientists across disciplines around challenging questions in neurosciences. Our small campus – where scientists from different disciplines can easily meet to share ideas – fosters collaborative, interdisciplinary research like no other.
We engage extraordinary people, including faculty and, through training programs and fellowships, graduate students and postdocs. We drive interdisciplinary research through major research initiatives and seed grants for off-the-beaten-path ideas. And we provide vital infrastructure, including a new, state-of-the-art research facility set to open in 2019.
