The Department of Neurology at the University of Kansas Medical Center (KUMC) is a robust and rapidly-growing department dedicated to excellence in research and clinical care. The department as a whole ranked 26th in the nation in National Institutes of Health grant funding in 2014, earning more than $6.4 million, and its faculty members and researchers continue to seek out new ways to improve patients’ lives.
FPN’s Peripheral Neuropathy Research Registry collaborative efforts between our partners and other institutions help us work toward a greater understanding of the cause and progression of PN. The Foundation is proud to provide the financial investments required to lead new medical innovations into the future. In addition to other funding provided to KUMC, the Foundation has awarded a grant for them to participate in FPN’s groundbreaking new patient registry for people with painful and non-painful neuropathies.
