Center for Neuroscience
Support the Center for Neuroscience this Give Day!

One of the greatest scientific challenges is to better understand the human brain. The Center for Neuroscience is the hub of interdisciplinary neuroscience research and education at UC Davis. The Center's world-class faculty, researchers and trainees conduct cutting-edge research at all levels of the nervous system, from genes and behavior, through all stages of life to advance our mission: reveal how the brain works and leverage these discoveries to promote health, advance treatments and cures for neurological and psychiatric disorders, and transform technologies to improve lives.

This Give Day, each gift moves us one step closer to our goal of unlocking 12 challenge gifts, totaling $70,000 from our generous Give Day sponsors.

Your gift – no matter the amount – will make a meaningful impact. When you support the Center for Neuroscience, you help advance innovative discoveries, inspire and train the next generation of neuroscientists, and provide educational activities, such as NeuroFest and K-12 brain science instructional programs in the greater Sacramento community.

Join our generous supporters and make a gift to the Center for Neuroscience today!

Time is running out to make an impact! Join us!
