Image of a functional MRIAlong with patient care and education, research is a pivotal component of the John Nasseff Neuroscience Institute’s mission. Consequently, under the championship of the John Nasseff Neuroscience Institute leadership, our Research Department was established in 2012 to provide operational support to John Nasseff Neuroscience Institute Researchers. 

Currently, we have investigators who specialize in neuro-oncology, neuro-pathology, neuro-radiology, stroke care, and neurophysiology. We continually strive to apply the discoveries made from our research projects toward improvements in patient care. We also bring what we learn from patients back to the research team to enhance our understanding of neuroscience. This bench-to-bedside approach allows us to move discoveries expeditiously into the patient-care setting, while helping researchers refine therapies and techniques based on clinical observations.

Our research staff includes specialized research nurses, clinical research project managers, study coordinators and a regulatory specialist. With this strong research support infrastructure in place, we plan to develop a robust research agenda by investigating important information about disease trends and risk factors, outcomes of treatment or public health interventions, functional abilities, and patterns of care in all neuroscience programs.  

The unequivocal mission of the John Nasseff Neuroscience Institute Research Department is to advocate and advance neuroscience research across numerous clinical programs with the ultimate goal of improving patient care.
