The Esther B. O’Keeffe Neuroscience Symposium Fund

The Esther B. O’Keeffe Neuroscience Symposium Fund was established with a generous gift from the Esther B. O’Keeffe Foundation. The Foundation has been an exemplary example of philanthropy for decades with their support of disease research and medical facilities that have enabled advances reaching around the world. The Neuroscience Symposium Fund provides support for symposia to help raise awareness and provide information about how the brain works and what goes wrong in a variety of neuropsychiatric disorders. The symposium series is designed for scientists, physicians, philanthropists, politicians, and community leaders. The fund also provides support for trainees in the Department.
