The Brain Health Research Institute (BHRI) is founded on the view that a thorough understanding of brain health across the lifespan is essential as a window into prevention and treatment of brain disease. The Institute includes more than 100 faculty members spanning over 30 different departments, schools and colleges throughout the Kent State community. These faculty work together with external partners that include the Northeast Ohio Medical University (NEOMED), Cleveland Clinic, Case Western Reserve University, Akron Children’s Hospital and members of the Cleveland Brain Health Initiative (CBHI).

Our goal is to translate basic neuroscience discoveries into new treatments and care for brain and nervous system diseases.
