The Columbia Neuropathy Research Center (CNRC)

In collaboration with neurologists, endocrinologists, other physicians, and basic scientists, the Columbia Neuropathy Research Center is committed to basic and human research designed to improve our understanding and effective treatment of peripheral and autonomic neuropathies of all types.

The CNRC is directed by Thomas H. Brannagan, M.D.. The Co-Director is Louis Weimer M.D. and the Research Coordinator is Stacy Mano. We are a part of the Department of Neurology at the Columbia University College of Physicians and Surgeons. We are located in the historic Neurological Institute of New York at 710 West 168th Street in the Columbia University Medical Center, overlooking the Hudson River.

The CNRC is funded exclusively by donor support and research grants. For information about how you can help support neuropathy research, please click here.
