About the Neuroscience Research Center

From the brain and through the spinal column, neuroscience research is the scientific study of the nervous system. The Neuroscience Research Center is led by Founding Director, Dr. Cecilia Hillard, Professor of Pharmacology and Toxicology, and embraces more than 100 faculty members from more than 13 departments on campus. Research in the nervous system at MCW is evolving at an extraordinary rate and promises to translate into applications that:

  • Help control diseases of addiction that dramatically impact the fabric of our society;
  • Treat diseases of aging like Alzheimer’s, ALS and Parkinson’s, as well as MS, stroke and chronic pain;
  • Prevent injuries to the brain, spinal cord and nervous system that can devastate families.

The Neuroscience Research Center is a national leader in basic and translational neuroscience research. The collaborative programmatic plan and strength in neuroscience research enhances and differentiates clinical care at Froedtert and the Medical College of Wisconsin.
