Since its founding in 1971, the Trust has funded research totalling more than £30 million at UCL's Institute of Neurology, Queen Square, London. The Trust aims to provide a steady income to sustain and expand the vital research carried out at the Institute of Neurology, which together with the National Hospital for Neurology and Neurosurgery, is the UK's foremost centre for research into diseases of the brain and nervous system. From the more than 250 identifiable neurological conditions, the Institute's current research programme includes: Alzheimer's Disease, Brain Tumours, Multiple Sclerosis, Stroke, Parkinson's Disease, Epilepsy, Motor Neurone Disease, Migraine, Brain Trauma and Spinal Cord Regeneration. Brain Research Trust is the leading UK charity for research into neurological disease. We need your help to fund this vital research and find cures and new treatments for these diseases and conditions.
