Excellence in research, education and clinical care

Under the leadership of Professor and Chair Laurie Gutmann, MD, the IU School of Medicine Department of Neurology’s core mission is to advance neurological health in Indiana and beyond through innovation and excellence in education, research and patient care.

The department is located in the new IU Health Neuroscience Center, a state-of-the-art outpatient center that unites all the specialties that involve nervous system disorders – Neurology, Neurosurgery, Psychiatry, Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation, Neuropsychology and Neuroradiology. It is also home of the main outpatient Neurophysiology (EEG, EMG and Evoked Potentials) laboratory at IU Health. The adjoining Indiana University Neurosciences Research building enables clinicians, basic scientists and physician scientists in the neurosciences to collaborate in research, education and patient care in an environment that is rarely achieved in academic medicine. This department has a rich tradition in academic neurology with a national reputation in neurological education and neuroscience research.
