Institute for Translational Neuroscience
The Institute for Translational Neuroscience (ITN) was established in 2007 as a University-wide presidential initiative to promote the transfer of discoveries in the basic neurosciences to clinical practice. The institute is charged to enhance basic science discovery with new knowledge leading to subsequent clinical trials and establishment of new therapeutic principles or tools.
We aim to attract and recruit top scientists to shape discoveries that will lead to tomorrow's cures. The institute exemplifies how different disciplines, departments, and centers can work together in partnership to evolve neurological disease research at the University of Minnesota.
These world-class centers embrace and advance the institute's mission:
- Center for Magnetic Resonance Research
- Center for Neuroengineering
- Center for Neurodegenerative Disease
- N. Bud Grossman Center for Memory Research and Care
