For Families and Patients

For Families & Patients

For the millions suffering from neurological diseases — and for the people who love them — hope for a normal life can seem remote. The researchers at the Jan and Dan Duncan Neurological Research Institute are committed to giving children and adults with neurological diseases the opportunity to enjoy life without compromise by offering hope for new treatments. The groundbreaking research conducted at the NRI is undertaken with one primary goal: to combat the effects of neurological disease by discovering new and better treatment options for those who suffer its effects.

"With this Institute, we're going to provide a quality and level of basic scientific research that will be unparalleled in any other children's hospital in Texas, in the United States, and maybe even the world."

Mark A. Wallace

President and CEO,
Texas Children's Hospital
