Founded in 2010, the Jan and Dan Duncan Neurological Research Institute (Duncan NRI) at Texas Children’s Hospital is one of the few research institutes in the world dedicated to solving pediatric and adult neurological, neurodegenerative, and neuropsychiatric disorders. Under the leadership of Drs. Huda Zoghbi, Joshua Shulman and Sameer Sheth, an incredible array of diversely-trained faculty come together to bridge the critical gap between basic research and clinical care. With over 30 faculty members who are world-class neuroscientists, clinicians, surgeons, computational biologists and chemists, the Duncan NRI deeply values and fosters a culture of multidisciplinary collaborations with the ultimate goal of developing new and improved treatments for neurological and neuropsychiatric disorders. Since inception, we have trained more than 600 talented scientists. These researchers — all affiliated with the Baylor College of Medicine, have made several breakthroughs unparalleled for an institute in existence for just over
a decade, resulting in:
Hub facility for pediatric research in areas of fundamental importance in microbiology, immunology, cell biology, genetics and the biology of infection and inflammation. Researchers at the Feigin Center are making landmark discoveries and fundamental contributions to the fields of pediatric cancer, women’s health, disorders of the blood, gastrointestinal tract, liver, kidney, bones as well as psychological conditions. In addition, they are world-class researchers in developing effective and safe vaccines for various emerging infectious diseases and cancers.
A unique cooperative venture between Texas Children’s Hospital, Baylor College of Medicine and the U.S. Department of Agriculture/Agricultural Research Service.
Provides a clinical research infrastructure for investigators who want to conduct patient-oriented clinical research at Texas Children’s Hospital.
