How You Can Help

Giving to the Department of Neurological Surgery helps advance the development of important surgical innovations provides talented faculty members with the funding needed to support groundbreaking research and helps translate that research into clinical applications. Our priorities include:

Seed funding

Seed funding for our early-career faculty and talented staff researchers supports basic and translational research, laying a foundation for improved understanding and treatment of disorders of the brain and spine. With philanthropic support, we hope to expand our clinical neuroscience partnerships at USC and with other institutions to bring new developments more quickly from the bench to the bedside.

Bridge funding gaps

With National Institutes of Health funding shrinking, we require philanthropic support more than ever to fund our ongoing clinical research infrastructure. With support for research personnel and data managers, our department can break new ground in surgical care of patients with brain and spine cancers and disorders, bringing the latest tools and techniques to the patients who need them.
