Our mission is to create a word-class infrastructure and collaborative community for interdisciplinary research of neurological disease and injury, to build bridges between innovative translational neuroscience research and clinical implementation, and to foster educational and professional development opportunities for junior investigators.

The Neuroscience Research Institute (NRI) was created to enhance the quality and breadth of neurological-related research at OSU by providing an infrastructure with an emphasis on translating research discoveries into clinical interventions. Comprehensive resources include an integrative brain bank and biorepository, mentorship and career development opportunities for junior investigators, and world-class educational symposiums. Another goal of the NRI is to foster cross-campus interdisciplinary collaborations with an emphasis in animal model, high-throughput assay, and experimental therapeutic development.
