The mission of the Tulane University Clinical Neuroscience Research Center (CNRC) is to establish a world-class translational and clinical research enterprise with educational, and community science components. The CNRC is developing novel therapies for stroke, dementia, and traumatic brain injury and translating these therapies from ‘bench to bedside’ to improve patient outcomes. The CNRC plans to serve as the integrating point and driving force behind the development of cutting-edge multidisciplinary science, state of the art clinical services, innovative community outreach improving health and care, and engagement with hospital partners. The CNRC is working to enhance research and clinical fellowship programs to attract and retain promising trainees and maintain excellence in medical student and resident education. The CNRC is also partnering with other institutes and departments at Tulane University to develop visionary multidisciplinary neuroscience programs across departmental boundaries and to achieve international recognition as a top tier neuroscience research center.
