Why support brain research?

Why invest in brain research?

The brain determines how we think, how we feel and who we are. While there have been many breakthroughs in recent years, researchers have a long way to go to fully unravel the mysteries of the brain.

There are about 1,000 disorders of the brain and nervous system. When a brain is damaged from disease or injury – the impact can be devastating.

Read Naomi Azrieli’s (Chair and CEO of the Azrieli Foundation and Chair of Brain Canada) article in the Globe and Mail on the importance of having a coordinated effort from both government and the private sector to fund brain research.
