More research, less brain diseases

More research, less brain diseases

As you may probably know and be aware, public funding for research is currently not enough to face all the challenges and ambitious goals set out in our ongoing efforts to better understand and combat the brain diseases.

We therefore need to reach out and inform society about the importance of making voluntary and selfless contributions to advance knowledge, with the will of fostering the search for therapies for neurodegenerative and/or autoimmune-mediated brain diseases.
