A Message from Dr. Rosenwasser


Dear Friend,

The brain and nervous system is a remarkable network—an elaborate arrangement of folds, grooves, fluids and nerves that all work together in synchrony. The same can be said of the multidisciplinary team that comprises Jefferson’s Vickie and Jack Farber Institute for Neuroscience.

Built on a foundation of innovation, the neurosciences at Jefferson has been a program on the move – a key component of a university and health system on the rise. Our impact on human health has been life-changing, and it’s expanding.

We have eminent faculty, engaged students, brilliant alumni and an unparalleled track record of innovation. We are on the brink of a new era in neuroscience at Jefferson, and with your help we will make major advances in better understanding and treating a wide range of neurological conditions.

We say that more brainpower yields more breakthroughs—which ultimately is about better outcomes for patients. That cycle starts with people like you, whose generosity fuels our work.

Philanthropy launches novel research, cultivates brilliance, opens educational opportunities and transforms the healing process. By supporting the Vickie and Jack Farber Institute at Jefferson, your generosity heals minds.

We invite you to learn why your support matters so much and how you can help us reimagine neuroscience healthcare, education and discovery. Thank you.
