We also are focused on applying what we learn through research to help and improve the lives of countless patients who suffer from debilitating mood disorders in Chicago, nationally and internationally. The Asher Center, with its Feinberg-affiliated care facilities, is on a trajectory to become an internationally prominent center of excellence for research and clinical practice pertaining to mood disorders. The foresight and extraordinary generosity of the Asher Family have created a strong foundation from which the Asher Center can grow and innovate into the future.
