The American Brain Foundation supports vital research and education to discover causes, improved treatments, and cures for brain and other nervous system diseases.
American Brain Foundation
The American Brain Foundation (ABF) believes that funding research across a broad spectrum of the brain and nervous system is the key to discovering a cure for brain disease. Much of the current awareness for brain disease has been fixed upon specific diseases like epilepsy, Alzheimer’s or Parkinson’s. By shifting to a holistic focus on the brain we have the potential to impact the lives of millions of people battling these diseases.
We are uniquely positioned to achieve our mission because of our exceptional research partnership with the American Academy of Neurology, the world's largest association serving neurologists and the neuroscience community. This partnership provides the Foundation access to the best and brightest minds to source high-reward research that cuts across various disease of the brain.
We take a "whole brain" approach, funding research on many disease of the brain and nervous system. We believe that a cure or discovery in one disease has the potential to cure many other diseases of the brain.
