Revolutionizing the Neurosciences.

The challenges our patients face are greater now than ever before. More people are affected by neurological conditions each year, from Parkinson’s disease to glioblastoma, confirming the need for a revolution in the neurosciences. We are leading the way and your philanthropic support will guarantee that PNI has the funds to continue searching for these cures. Learn more about us.

 


 

Fuel the Revolution. Make a Difference.

Each day our researchers and physicians strive to understand and target the genetic, molecular and immunological basis of brain cancer and neurological disorders. They fight to help extend survival rates rapidly restoring and sustaining quality of life for patients with brain cancer and benign tumors of the brain, skull base and pituitary gland. They work to enhance outcomes for patients with stroke and cerebral aneurysms, hydrocephalus, movement disorders, facial pain syndromes, neurodegeneration and related disorders of the eye and ear.

Your donation will propel neuroscience research and therapies forward advancing one of the final frontiers of medicine.

We are at the forefront of providing groundbreaking therapies, and dedicated to finding cures and novel solutions for some of medicine’s most daunting challenges. We are fueled by the support of friends like you who make a difference through your generosity. By giving to PNI, you are making it possible to pave the way in revolutionizing the neurosciences and creating a better future for all of us.

We can’t do it without you.
