About The Neurosciences Foundation Website
The Neurosciences Foundation is a registered charity founded in 1978 to support research which will ultimately help patients who have injured, or developed diseases of their brain and nervous system.
The Foundation has granted over £1 million to early career doctors and scientists to explore new techniques and diagnostic treatments into neurological conditions such as epilepsy, Parkinson’s disease, brain tumours, stroke and dementia. The research funded by The Neurosciences Foundation is centred, although not exclusively on the Institute of Neurosciences and the Spinal Unit at the Queen Elizabeth University Hospital in Glasgow, Scotland. The Institute has a world-wide reputation for excellent research, attracting internationally-recognised and highly-trained doctors who work in a coordinated group with expert nurses, therapists, scientists and administrators.
Before the Board of Trustees can decide which of the projects should receive funding, a Medical Advisory Committee (MAC) conducts a rigorous peer review of the applications. Trustees, members of the Medical Advisory Committee and external expert advisors all give their time freely to this process.
