Women’s Guild Neurology Project

Our current project brings high-impact philanthropy to
Cedars-Sinai to help unlock the mysteries of the human brain.

In 2019, Women’s Guild extended its far-reaching partnership with the medical center by establishing the Women’s Guild Distinguished Chair in Neurology and launching the Women’s Guild Neurology Project—an ambitious, $7 million initiative to drive innovative research and education to advance understanding of complex neurological disorders. Led by Women’s Guild Distinguished Chair in Neurology Nancy L. Sicotte, MD, the project will enable physicians and researchers to identify ways to diagnose, treat, prevent and perhaps even cure Alzheimer’s disease and other dementias, Parkinson’s disease, amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS), multiple sclerosis, epilepsy, migraine and more.

An important component of the Women’s Guild Neurology Project will be to spearhead breakthrough clinical trials, which may potentially speed approvals for new medications and other treatment protocols. The initiative will also help facilitate the recruitment and retention of the best and brightest neurology clinicians and scientists from around the globe. The project will enable collaborations among neurologists, neurosurgeons and other key caregivers to ensure patients and their families are receiving customized, compassionate, world-class care. The Women’s Guild Neurology Project brings high-impact philanthropy to the neurosciences as we seek to unlock the mysteries of the human brain. Leveraging resources to strengthen investigation and discovery, find new pathways to prevention and advance next-generation clinical care, the project distinguishes Cedars-Sinai as a leader in neurological and neurosurgical medicine.
