Establishment of a West African Neuroscience Research Department is a key goal, bringing together current and future research studies into a cohesive unit. Finding cures for tropical diseases that attack the brain and spinal cord is critical, as Ghana embarks on the development of a world-class neuroscience centre. Research performed on the African continent advances infrastructure, autonomy, and sparks youth to aim high to achieve scientific breakthroughs for their people. Partnering with the University of Ghana, College of Health Sciences, this department will be under the authority of the Anatomy Department. Neuro-based research will be conducted in a coordinated and strategic manner and will conduct joint partnerships with North American Universities.
