The Friedman Brain Institute at the Icahn School of Medicine is an interdisciplinary clinical and research hub that is defining the mechanisms behind brain and spinal cord disorders and translating those findings into preventative or restorative interventions.
The Institute represents a large, multidisciplinary effort involving numerous basic science and clinical departments on campus. We focus on neural injury and repair, cognitive function and neuropsychiatry. By taking advantage of the growing body of knowledge about brain and spinal cord disorders, we are poised to drive revolutionary advances in patient care by developing more effective diagnostic tests, treatments, and preventative measures.
We are one of the world’s premier institutions dedicated to advancing our understanding of brain and spinal cord disorders, and driving innovative approaches to new treatments and diagnostic tests through translational research. Founded in 2008, the Institute trains the next generation of researchers and clinicians in leading-edge brain science. We invite you to become a partner in our extraordinary efforts by making a tax-deductible donation.
Commitment to Diversity
The FBI Leadership advocates unanimously for proactive promotion of diversity and inclusivity at all levels of all its activities both on campus and off campus. As a statement of this importance, we affirm that we will only participate in and organize symposia, panels, etc. that include women scientists, and we will work toward racial/ethnic diversity as well.
