There are hundreds of neurological conditions.

There are hundreds of neurological conditions. Some we are born with. Some develop over time. Some are caused by injury. 

They vary enormously in terms of the impact that they have on the lives of those affected. Some are rapidly fatal. Some cause a gradual decline in function. Some are chronic and debilitating. 

We fund the best research to discover the causes, develop new treatments, and improve the lives of those affected by these conditions.

Our funding is currently focused on three priority areas: acquired brain and spinal cord injury, brain tumours, and headache and facial pain. These are areas that we have identified as having a large unmet patient need, coupled with a lack of current research investment. These priority areas are kept under review by our Scientific Advisory Panel. Find out more about our research priorities. 

We have active research projects in other areas, funded via earlier funding initiatives or via endowments that are restricted to specific neurological conditions - such as the Graeme Watts endowment for research into motor neurone disease.
