    The Department of Neurology at the University of Iowa is committed to transforming the understanding, prevention, detection, and treatment of major neurological illnesses and issues through its extensive research initiatives.

    Funded research in the Department of Neurology spans a large segment of the spectrum of neuroscience investigation. We currently host 12 individual NIH grants and 16 NIH subcontracts totaling $3.8 million annually in total costs, plus an additional 5 VA Merit Review grants.

    Last year, for example, George Richerson, MD, PhD, professor and head of the Department of Neurology received a $1.4 million research grant to investigate causes, predictors, and prevention methods of sudden unexpected deaths in epilepsy.

    We also rely on donations to fund research initiatives, if you are interested in donating please see our donations page.
