Support the Department of Pharmacology & Experimental Neuroscience

The mission of the Department of Pharmacology & Experimental Neuroscience is to educate the next generation of health care providers, perform on the cutting edge of science, and serve the people of our state and those worldwide. Gifts to any fund are tax deductible.

Pharmacology & Experimental Neuroscience (PEN) at UNMC houses a highly talented team of scientists, who collaborate in searching for novel ways to uncover the fundamentals of brain and nerve function and activity to define, treat, and prevent brain and nerve related disorders.

Private support from patients, families, and friends plays a critical role in the success of PEN.  Never before has the promise for success been greater, but significant resources are needed to advance their critical discoveries.  Your support can help elicit the greatest potential from this dedicated team and ensures that their work moves ahead aggressively to mitigate these devastating disorders before another generation is affected.
