Help Support the Brain Health Institute! 

The goal of BHI is to develop neuroscience at Rutgers to become a highly translational and internationally preeminent research enterprise.  This vision will be achieved by integrating cutting-edge basic and clinical research, developing robust educational programs, enhancing scientific collaborations, and providing a state-of-the-art infrastructure. Donor support plays an essential role in enabling BHI scientists make new biomedical and health related discoveries.  Our scientists rely on external funding support from the government, state, corporations, and private philanthropic investors who understand the value and importance of basic, clinical and translational neuroscience research.  Neuroscience researchers at Rutgers have been remarkably successful in obtaining federal and state research funding, even in the current era of waning funding. We are fortunate that private philanthropic investors have shown increasing support for our research programs. BHI currently has the Murray and Charlotte Strongwater, Greg Brown and Herbert C. and Jacqueline Krieger Klein Endowed Chairs, but more are needed.  Endowments are also needed to support core facilities and other research activities. With your support, we can help facilitate basic, clinical and translational neuroscience research at Rutgers that will lead to novel therapies and cures for neurological and neuropsychiatric disorders.

The CAHBIR is dedicated to achieving high-quality human neuroscience research using state-of-the-art neuroimaging techniques. The mission has been to incorporate the latest developments and scanning so that researchers can push the boundaries of what we can learn about how the brain works in health and disease. 

The RARC, the largest comprehensive addiction research center in the country, is a multidisciplinary home for addiction-related activities across Rutgers, bringing together researchers, clinicians, and community members who are dedicated to tackling addiction. The research at Rutgers spans basic science, prevention and intervention, treatment and recovery, and public policy. It addresses substance use disorders, gambling, social media and gaming, eating disorders, and more.

The BHI launched the center in 2023 and recruited Dr. Michal Schnaider Beeri as the director. The center spearheads clinical research on Alzheimer’s disease (AD), aiming to develop groundbreaking medical treatments. Donor support of the Klein Center promotes research to understand the causes of and potential treatments for Alzheimer’s, a disease that impacts an estimated 6.5 million Americans.
The BHI launched the RUCARES to coordinate and foster basic and clinical research focused on diagnosing and supporting individuals with autism spectrum disorder (ASD). The goal is to develop a world-class autism research center engaged in cutting- edge basic research to identify mechanisms and biomarkers, developing novel interventional behavioral therapies, creating new technologies and services to support both pediatric and adult ASD patient population.
