About Brain Research Endowment Fund Dinner

QBI’s scientists, through fundamental research, have made great advances in understanding the brain and its potential, while also moving towards solutions for some of the most devastating neurological diseases, ranging from mental health disorders to neurodegenerative diseases.

The QBI Brain Research Endowment Fund was established to embrace the critical role that philanthropic donations play in progressing new, out-of-the-box ideas that lead to scientific breakthroughs. It is the steadfast commitment to fundamental research that has ultimately led to our current clinical trials of Scanning Ultrasound as a potential treatment for Alzheimer’s Disease and a new drug to prevent the progression of Motor Neuron Disease.
