Carroll A. Campbell, Jr. Neuropathology Laboratory (Brain Bank)
Carroll A. Campbell, Jr. Neuropathology Laboratory - Brain Bank
The Carroll A. Campbell, Jr. Neuropathology Laboratory serves as a statewide resource for patients, families, and researchers and will be the link between scientists and clinicians involved in aging research. The primary goal is to improve the diagnosis, care, and treatment of individuals suffering from neurological diseases; and, to accomplish this task, we must obtain brain tissue through donations from persons with neurological disorders, as well as those without, so that we may study the mechanisms responsible for these devastating illnesses. There is a great need for brain tissue from healthy older adults, for comparison and for studies of normal aging-related changes in the brain.
The generous donation of brain tissue, as well as financial support from South Carolinians has helped this young program gain momentum and recognition, however there is much work that remains to be done in order to develop treatment avenues for these neurological disorders.
If it is your wish, or your loved one's wish, a memorial fund may be set up with the Carroll A. Campbell, Jr. Neuropathology Laboratory in their honor.
Please request that contributions are designated to the Carroll A. Campbell, Jr. Neuropathology Lab and are made payable to:
