Our Mission

The American Association of Neuropathologists, Inc., is a professional society of neuropathologists, composed of physicians and scientists involved in research, training, and the clinical practice of neuropathology. 

Our mission is to advance the study of diseases that affect the nervous system, and to minimize suffering through discovery, education, and the delivery of patient-centered clinical care.

Our Goals 

The American Association of Neuropathologists seeks:
  • to disseminate knowledge about disorders affecting the nervous system through publications, lectures, courses, and all other forms of communication,
  • to create new knowledge through scientific research and publication, joining teams of other scientists, scholars, and physicians in a team-based approach to discovery, and
  • to educate and mentor young physicians and scientists who have chosen, or are contemplating joining us in our mission to eradicate neurologic disease and the associated disability.
