Perot Foundation Neuroscience Translational Research Center

The Perot Foundation Neuroscience Translational Research Center (NTRC) facilitates and enhances quality clinical research within the O'Donnell Brain Institute by providing resources for scientists, clinicians, and patients.

The NTRC provides clinic space, equipment, personnel, and other resources so that principal investigators can conduct clinical research trials with ease.

We strive to increase the recruitment of high-quality, cost-effective clinical trials whether they are government/industry-sponsored, or investigator-initiated.

Additionally, we want to provide patients with access to cutting-edge clinical research opportunities.
