About the Friends of the Brain Institute

 

Hi, welcome to the Friends of the Brain Institute. We are a community group that realises the value of research to increase our health and well-being. We're getting in behind the New Zealand Brain Research Institute and the work they do to understand the neurological illnesses that affect so many of us. We'll be fund-raising to support their research, and be raising awareness of brain health and disease. We'd love to have you on board!

- Kathryn Mulcock, Chairman, Friends of the Brain Institute

 

What we do

"Our job is to increase the understanding of how the brain works and how it breaks down in neurological diseases. Only from there can we can work towards treatments.

Our progress is only possible with the time given by our many patients and volunteers and their families. But health research, using the latest techniques and equipment, is an expensive investment. So we're very grateful for the support of the Friends of the Brain Institute, and hope you'll consider helping them to help us all."

- Dr Michael MacAskill, Research Director, New Zealand Brain Research Institute
