University of Minnesota Regional Coordinating Center


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.
