Butler Hospital is a national leader in advancing mental health treatments through research in Alzheimer’s disease and other memory disorders, mood disorders, addictions, body dysmorphic disorder, and obsessive-compulsive disorder.
To ensure that these advances in brain science continue, Butler has begun a new Research Endowment Fund. Revenue from the fund will:
- help finance new computer labs for neuroscience
- increase access to the latest brain imaging technology
- provide pilot funding to clinicians and researchers, giving them a competitive edge for federal grant funding
- enable Butler to recruit up-and-coming researchers who will make the discoveries of tomorrow
- attract top quality emerging researchers to the state, which will stimulate the economy and create jobs
With an initial goal of $1.2 million, this research endowment will seed new research, ensure current research studies at Butler continue, and strengthen the scientific infrastructure in Rhode Island that supports research to improve the brain health and of people affected by mental illness.
