All individuals will hold faculty appointments at the UNMC.

The Child Health Research Institute was established in 2017 and aims to assist investigators with start-up funding and infrastructure for clinical, basic science or translational research.

Most of the Department faculty carry out their clinical activities at Children’s with activities in select clinical areas occurring at The Nebraska Medical Center, which is operated by UNMC’s primary adult academic partner, Nebraska Medicine.

The Department of Neurological Sciences (DONS) at UNMC has 50 clinical and research faculty members and has a robust infrastructure to support clinical and academic activities of a rapidly growing faculty.
