Institute of Pharmacology and Neurotherapeutics

Developing Next-Generation Therapies for Brain Diseases

Brain diseases affect about 500 million people worldwide, including roughly 25 percent of the U.S. population, and many are disabled due to lack of effective therapies. The Texas A&M Health Institute of Pharmacology and Neurotherapeutics (IPN) harnesses the power of multidisciplinary team science to address the urgent need for developing therapies for brain diseases.

Leveraging the Power of Team Science

Our key goal is to promote and accelerate the search for therapies for neurological conditions and advance education and training in neurotherapeutics research.

We forge partnerships and build synergies among brain scientists, biomedical engineers, neural machine learning researchers, and clinical and regulatory technologists. Such collaborations are crucial for successful development of next-generation neurotherapies.

Education & Training

We provide a number of courses, workshops, training programs and research projects that advance the education and training of researchers to diversify the workforce in neurotherapeutics research.



The institute features a world-class group of investigators with extensive expertise in pharmacology and neurotherapeutics.

IPN Research


Brain disorders affect nearly a quarter of the U.S. population and cost the U.S. economy more than $1.5 trillion per year. Emerging neural technologies have unprecedented potential for a new revolution in neurotherapeutics.
