Swedish Neuroscience Institute

Swedish Neuroscience Institute (SNI) is a world-famous neuroscience institute with a proud history of excellent patient safety and high quality outcomes, and because of this has become a destination for some of the most complex patients. 

Donations help give patients comprehensive neurologic care today while we pursue research breakthroughs to transform care for tomorrow.

Patient Care and Support Services

Stroke Program
Patients experience a stroke need timely, precise care. Our stroke program, led by Yince Loh, M.D., provides leading-edge treatment—including telestroke consults to patients in remote areas—and coordinated post-stroke care from a dedicated nurse navigator.

ALS - Certified Center of Excellence 
Our vision is to create a comprehensive clinic where the patient comes into Swedish to receive all necessary care at one time in a seamless experience.  

MS Center Endowment for Supportive Care Services
Through the MS Center’s comprehensive care model, patients’ physical, emotion and social wellness are addressed along with clinical treatment of the disease. Funding sustains care by vital service providers. Click here to see country music star, Clay Walker's visit of the MS Center. Watch how the MS Center test drives Virtual Reality Headsets for the MS Adventure Program.

Swedish Program for Healthy Aging
Alzheimer's and other forms of dementia can be isolating. Led by Nancy Isenberg, M.D., MPH, the Swedish Program for Healthy Aging strives to create connection and approach care with compassion for both our patients, as well as for spouses and family members who care for them.


CMV Virus Research
At the Ben and Catherine Ivy Center for Brain Tumor Research & Treatment Dr. Charles Cobbs is pioneering an aggressive plan to wipe out the deadliest form of brain cancer, and is now on the verge of developing a vaccine that could virtually eradicate this extremely aggressive brain tumor—much like how the HPV vaccine is saving women from cervical cancer.

Neuroscience Investigation
Dedicated to conduct clinical trials, the Neuroscience Investigation fund will coordinate research and innovation to explore new investigative ideas in the neuroscience field.

Cyberdyne Clinical Trial
The Cyberdyne clinical trial is an advanced clinical trial system that tests new treatments options for paralysis.


Neurovascular Fellowship and Technology
Revolutionize the neurovascular lab to reflect the latest cutting-edge technology to aid in stroke, aneurysm and other blood vessel disorders.

EOS Imaging
The EOS Imaging System is a low-dose, 3-D imaging system that scans the patient standing up in one film and shows the interaction between joints and the musculoskeletal system, particularly the spine, hips and legs.  

The images are extremely detailed, high-quality images that can make more informed diagnoses and create individualized treatment plans for patients with deformities and scoliosis.  


Epilepsy Internship
Summer internship program for undergraduate students considering a career in science or medicine, under mentorship of leaders in epilepsy and neurology.

Help bring European physicians here to Seattle to educate and train our physicians are the latest treatment options.
