**Due to the current situation with Covid-19, QBI events, including the Discovery Research Endowment Fund Launch, have been postponed until further notice. Watch this space for further details on how to keep up-to-date with QBI.
 

In early 2020, the Queensland Brain Institute (QBI), at the University of Queensland, will launch its QBI Discovery Research Endowment Fund, which will help to bridge the gap between high performing scientists with pioneering ideas and the next big scientific discovery.

Join master of ceremonies, Garry Waugh, and keynote speaker, Dr Norman Swan, ABC Radio National, who will provide an insight into why we need to solve today's big problems through innovative thinking and research.  

Research at QBI is the critical lifeline to gaining a deeper understanding of the fundamental mechanisms which control the brain and possible solutions to many of the health problems facing the world today.

The QBI Discovery Research Endowment Fund will allow some of the best minds in the world to concentrate on curiosity-driven research, Philanthropy plays a crucial role in providing financial backing for this early-stage research, and is a critical pathway to uncovering entirely new approaches to easing the burden of brain-related diseases in the future. This is the foundation QBI has been built on and has been integral to our success.

We look forward to your company to learn how the role of philanthropy is indispensable in supporting early-stage research which will have an indelible impact on QBI's sustainability and, ultimately, success.
