Safadi Program of Excellence in Clinical and Translational Neuroscience

SafadiLogo2.jpgWhether in clinical care or medical research, it is critical for physicians and scientists to partner in order to make important advances. This is particularly true in the neurosciences, where the brain presents an immense frontier for scientific advances utilizing collaborative tools and integrative strategies. The Safadi Program of Excellence in Clinical and Translational Neuroscience at the University of Chicago Medicine was launched on April 18, 2017, with the aim of facilitating this multidisciplinary interface, and creating opportunities for collaboration among scientists and clinicians engaged in the diagnosis and treatment of neurological disorders. (Learn more about Mr. Mohammad Safadi.)

Serving as a bridge between clinical disciplines engaged in the care of neurological diseases, including neurology and neurosurgery, the Safadi Program will further our understanding of the underlying biology of the nervous system and translate those novel findings to improve patient care. In addition, the Safadi Program will catalyze partnerships with groups across the University, enabling cross-disciplinary thinking that will allow us to tackle the most complex problems in the field.
