Focus on our research

The Nerve Research Foundation was established in 1985 to raise funds for research into diseases of the nervous system so that better management and treatment could be developed and to raise public and medical awareness of these conditions. The Foundation has fostered research efforts into important neurological diseases including Alzheimer’s disease, Multiple Sclerosis, Epilepsy, Stroke, Motor Neuron disease, Peripheral Neuropathy and several hereditary disorders.

In 1995 the Nerve Research Foundation united with the Institute of Clinical Neurosciences at the University of Sydney and Royal Prince Alfred Hospital. The Foundation enjoys a broad base of neuroscience expertise – both clinical and basic and its research efforts include all branches of neurological disease.
