University of Minnesota Regional Coordinating Center


UofMN-Neuro

Since the 1920s, the Academic Health Center at the University of Minnesota has been at the forefront of progressive research in the health sciences.  Research is a critical element in the fight against neurological disease; it paves the way for the development and implementation of new therapies and provides opportunities to expand our academic mission. Understanding the root cause of neurological disorders is a hallmark of the neurology research enterprise. 

The department of Neurology has fostered the development of a wide range of subspecialty services provided by expert clinicians.  We have interdisciplinary programs across all major subspecialties through collaborations with colleagues in the Departments of Emergency Medicine, Neurosurgery, Psychiatry, Radiology/Neuroradiology, ENT, Biomedical Engineering and Neuroscience.
