The Roy J. Carver Charitable Trust has committed a transformational $45 million grant to the University of Iowa that allowed for the creation of a comprehensive and cross-disciplinary neuroscience center within the Carver College of Medicine. Led by Ted Abel, PhD, the new Iowa Neuroscience Institute conducts research to find the causes of — and preventions, treatments, and cures for — the many diseases that affect the brain and nervous system.
