Support the Institute for Neuro-Immune Medicine
Dr. Klimas Gives a Call for Support
Dr. Nancy Klimas, Director of the Institute for Neuro Immune Medicine, shares how the INIM has grown in the past 3 years and gives updates on the exciting new research being conducted by the team.
As the only institution of its kind in the State of Florida, the Institute for Neuro-Immune Medicine (INIM) at Nova Southeastern University (NSU), is involved in cutting-edge translational research in complex immune disorders and treatment for patients suffering from these medical illnesses.
Nancy Klimas, M.D., and her team bring decades of experience in patient care, research and education that has contributed to furthering the understanding of these conditions and has changed lives.
This work takes significant resources. Private philanthropy can make the difference needed to uncover a new genetic link or therapeutic approach that will improve treatments.
By making a gift to NSU’s Institute for Neuro-Immune Medicine, you will help advance groundbreaking research with immediate and long-term benefits for patient care. Your gift, no matter the amount, is critical and will provide INIM with the resources it needs to be one of the world’s most successful and distinguished centers of research, patient care, and intellectual inquiry.
As a donor, you will receive an acknowledgement and receipt to use for tax purposes, and, to recognize our appreciation for different levels of generosity, NSU has a donor recognition program.
There are many ways to support NSU’s Institute for Neuro-Immune Medicine. Choose the method that works best for you. NSU advancement staff will work with you to ensure that your gift meets your goals and financial needs while also benefitting INIM. Your gift, no matter the amount, will help ensure that INIM will continue to be a vital resource for our community.

Of special note, Nova Southeastern University has recently created a new giving recognition society that has been established in order to formally acknowledge thoughtful individuals who have made the University a beneficiary through an estate planning vehicle. For example, legacy gifts may come from a simple bequest through a will, a beneficiary of a trust, a beneficiary of a charitable gift annuity, or as a beneficiary of a life insurance policy or retirement account. Individuals who make a legacy gift commitment by December 31, 2015, will automatically become a Founding Member of the newly named 1964 Society and will be invited to attend the formal induction ceremony in early 2016.. (There is no minimum amount in which to make a legacy gift and to become a member of the 1964 Society.)
Please join us in our mission to advance clinical care and translational research; develop collaborative scientific studies; contribute to the improved health of our communities; and to be the best that we can be.
We appreciate any and all donations. Thank you for your thoughtful generosity.
