Your support will make a difference. The Translational Neuroscience Center (TNC) at Boston Children’s Hospital seeks to engage physicians and researchers from multiple disciplines in Finding New Cures, and Accelerating Research into the causes, prevention, diagnosis and treatment of nervous system disorders
Your gift will help us develop and test new ideas in the laboratory and the clinic, train future physician-scientists focused on the developing nervous system and its disorders, and share new multi-disciplinary care and research models with our colleagues everywhere.
You may direct your gift to the TNC to research in particular disease areas, or to specific programs including:
- Fellowships to train physician-scientists in translational neuroscience
- Human Neuron Differentiation Service—will create human neurons from stem cells derived from patients and healthy controls to test new drugs for neurodevelopmental disorders
- Human Neurobehavioral Core Service—will create new and improved behavioral assessments and scales to characterize neurodevelopmental disorders and measure drug efficacy in clinical trials
- Pilot Projects in Translational Neuroscience—will convert basic scientific discoveries into novel therapeutic approaches to brain disorders
For information about giving to the TNC, please contact Lisa Slater at Lisa.Slater@chtrust.org or call Lisa at 617-355-5338. We are very grateful for your help in improving the lives of children with nervous system disorders worldwide.
