Accelerating Breakthroughs, Finding Cures

Diseases like cancer and Alzheimer’s require collaborative thinking across disciplines to generate the knowledge we need to advance prevention, treatments, and cures. That’s why our researchers at the Brown Institute for Translational Science are studying the mechanisms underlying disease, seeking breakthroughs to improve quality of life. 

Thanks in part to generous donor support, we are: 

  • Establishing new professorships in areas such as Alzheimer’s, respiratory diseases, and cancer research. 
  • Setting up a regional cancer center led by a nationally renowned physician-scientist.
  • Manipulating the gene networks that determine the rate of aging.  
  • Bolstering support for training the next generation of physician-scientists. 

With your help, Brown will continue to build its capacity as a powerhouse of cooperative, innovative, patient-centered biomedical research. The momentum is accelerating: yours could be the gift that unlocks a cure.

Support biomedical research.

With your help, we're deciphering disease, finding cures, and advancing leading-edge research.
