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 150 Kent State University faculty members in over 25 different departments, schools and colleges throughout the Kent State community. These faculty work together with researchers from external partner institutions that include Akron Children’s Hospital, the Cleveland Clinic and the Northeast Ohio Medical University (NEOMED).

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