Ryan Institute for Neuroscience

Visit Group Website

Neuroscience is one of the most exciting and intensive areas of investigation around the world. Representing a diverse range of disciplines, neuroscientists collectively are interested in studying how the nervous system is organized and how it functions.

Tom and Cathy Ryan have partnered with the University of Rhode Island to create the George & Anne Ryan Institute for Neuroscience. This research institute will capitalize on the Interdisciplinary Neuroscience Program (INP) at the University of Rhode Island, where faculty are actively involved in a wide range of neuroscience research and a new interdisciplinary neuroscience doctoral program.

Research at the Ryan Institute, complementing and enhancing existing research at URI, will focus on discovering therapies and preventative approaches to combat neurodegenerative diseases.
