The Mortimer B. Zuckerman Mind Brain Behavior Institute

Columbia University has established the Zuckerman Institute for the pursuit of interdisciplinary and collaborative research in brain science. A deeper understanding of the brain promises to transform human health and society. From treatments for disorders like Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s, and depression, to advances in fields as fundamental as computer science, economics, and social policy, the potential impact for humanity is staggering.

When Columbians come together, extraordinary things can happen in a day’s time. On October 21, 2015, thousands of individuals from the Columbia University community made an unprecedented impact through Columbia Giving Day. The generosity of these alumni, parents, students, faculty, staff, and friends is changing the lives of Columbians who will change the world. Thank you!
