Sandler Neurosciences Center

In honor of Herbert and Marion Sandler’s extraordinary commitment to neurological disease research at UCSF, our new neurosciences building at Mission Bay has been named the Sandler Neurosciences Center. This 237,000 square foot facility has laboratories headed by principal investigators from the UCSF Department of Neurology, the Institute for Neurodegenerative Diseases (IND), and the Center for Integrative Neuroscience (CIN). The Sandler Neurosciences Center, along with nearby Arthur and Toni Rembe Rock Hall, makes Mission Bay one of the largest neuroscience complexes in the world. The strength and depth of UCSF neuroscience can be seen in the diverse areas of research captured by our faculty in the Neuroscience Graduate Program.

Throughout the Department of Neurology, our mission is to deliver superb patient care, to apply state-of-the-art translational research methods to discover the causes of and treatments for human nervous system disorders, and to educate each generation of medical students, neurology residents and postdoctoral fellows. By fostering cross-disciplinary interactions among scientists around the world, we accelerate the pace of discovery and champion the University's global health initiatives.
