Brain Foundation

The Brain Foundation is a nationally registered health charity dedicated to funding research selected from the best proposals in Australia into brain and spinal disorders and injuries. Learn about the Brain Foundation and their mission.

Those conditions account for over half the death and disability in Australia each year. Clinical neuroscientific is underfunded and the Brain Foundation reaches out to the community for support. The nature of research that has great potential is that it's high risk, but the foundation is independent and will support those projects with potentially high reward.
